I’m a machine learning engineer on a team at PayPal that develops algorithms for personalized donation recommendations (among other things). Before this, I studied computer science at Cornell University. I also manage the Effective Public Interest Computing Slack (join here).

Obligatory disclaimer: My content on the Forum represents my opinions alone and not those of PayPal.

I also offer copyediting and formatting services to members of the EA community for $15-35 per page, depending on the client’s ability to pay. DM me for details.

I’m also interested in effective altruism and longtermism broadly. The topics I’m interested in change over time; they include existential risks, climate change, wild animal welfare, alternative proteins, and longtermist global development.

“It is important to draw wisdom from many different places. If we take it from only one place, it becomes rigid and stale. Understanding others, the other elements, and the other nations will help you become whole.” —Uncle Iroh
