Hey everyone, excited to be part of this! :) I was born, grew up in, currently live and also study in Zurich, Switzerland. I’ve just completed my fourth semester of studying political science (major) and philosophy (minor) at the University of Zurich. I currently plan to pursue a master’s in political science with a specialisation in PPE (philosophy, politics, economics) and am generally interested in interdisciplinary research on “the big questions”, especially regarding suffering, the future, and uncertainty.
The plight of badly-off humans and other animals has been a constant emotional involvement and intellectual interest of mine for many years, but only comparably recently have I embarked on my path to study how I could apply my compassion more systematically in a way that helps me to be more effective in making this world a better place. I’ve been fascinated by the philosophy of and social movement around EA since early 2020 and am excited about the profound impact EA has had on my life ever since.
On my blog, I have a list of some of my current core intellectual interests that have accumulated over the last few years. Please feel free to reach out to me to recommend or/and ask for any resources! :)
