I studied Maths and Philosophy. I have helped implement the European Summer Program on Rationality during 2017, 2018 and 2019, and SPARC during 2020.

I prefer to spend most of my time acquiring deeper models of things, as opposed to hacking metrics. I keep a record of interesting projects at I've also sold software and worked as a contractor for diverse forecasting projects.

  • If you look at your forecasting mistakes, do they have a common thread?
  • How is your experience acquiring expertise at forecasting similar/different to acquiring expertise in other domains, e.g. obscure board-games? How so?
  • Any forecasting ressources you recommend?
  • Who do you look up to?
  • How does the distribution skill / hours of effort look for forecasting for you?
  • Do you want to wax poetically or ramble disorganizedly about any aspects of forecasting?
  • Any secrets of reality you've discovered & which you'd like to share?
