I am a Senior Economist at Rethink Priorities (https://www.rethinkpriorities.org/our-team), previously an Economics lecturer/professor for 15 years
I’m working to impact EA fundraising and marketing; see https://bit.ly/eamtt
And projects bridging EA, academia, and open science (esp. the ‘Unjournal’) … see bit.ly/eaprojects
My previous and ongoing research focuses on determinants and motivators of charitable giving (propensity, amounts, and ‘to which cause?’), and drivers of/barriers to effective giving, as well as the impact of pro-social behavior and social preferences on market contexts.

Wondering what the EA Mexico fellowship was like? I audio recorded some of my own experiences and chats, and I’m putting it into my podcast.
First episode: Turismo Eficaz, episode 1 (On the Podcast “Found in the Struce” … on all platforms)
This one has some discussion of AI safety areas and careers that people may find interesting and useful.
If there’s interest I’ll put up a couple more episodes from my audio, with some discussions about the fellowship and potential future initiatives.
