Karma: 480


I am a student in Philosophy and AI, with a particular interest in philosophy of science, political philosophy, philosophy of mind, complex systems studies and active inference—as they pertain to AI risk, governance and alignment. More generally, I am interested in what we can learn from the study of intelligent behaviour in currently existing, natural systems (across scales and substrates) towards questions as to the nature, behaviour and risks related to future AI systems.

I have a background in International Relations, and spend large parts of of 2017-2019 doing complex systems inspired research on understanding group decision making and political processes with the aim of building towards an appropriate framework for “Longterm Governance”. I am interested in how (bounded) minds make sense of and navigate a (complex) world (rationality, critical thinking, etc.) and have experience some experience in research organization, among others from working at FHI, CHERI, Epistea, etc.
