Karma: 77

Hey, I’m Evie! I’m eighteen, and I’m studying an undergrad in Physics and Philosophy at the University of Oxford.

At the start of 2022, I left high school early to self-study maths and physics. Before that, I did work experience at the Future of Humanity Institute, interned at Charity Entrepreneurship, and attended a rationality camp. I’m an Atlas Fellowand was awarded the Open Phil Undergrad Scholarship in Nov 2021.

Outside of that, I really enjoy cold water swimming (some of my best memories are swimming in the sea with my mum, near where I grew up), writing blog posts, and conversations with people who are very enthusiastic about a particular subject — whether that be economics, feminism, or Hamilton the musical :P
