    Cause Areas:
    • I'm primarily interested in doing research on Climate Policy, AI safety, or AI ethics. I'm also open to anything X-risk related or related to animal welfare.

    • My technical experience using neural networks and transformers is limited, but I am taking courses and working on projects in my spare time to develop those skills.
  • EA Involvement:
    • I've been following the 80,000 Hours and Future of Life Institute podcast for a few years and donate via GiveWell. I'm broadly convinced by the arguments for longtermism.
