I’m Michael Aird, a Summer Research Fellow with the Center on Long-Term Risk (though I don’t personally subscribe to suffering-focused views on ethics). Opinions expressed in my posts or comments should be assumed to be my own, unless I indicate otherwise. You can give me anonymous feedback here.
Previously, I did existential risk research & writing for Convergence Analysis and grant writing for a sustainability accounting company. Before that, I was a high-school teacher for two years in the Teach For Australia program, ran an EA-based club and charity election at the school I taught at, published a peer-reviewed psychology paper, and won a stand-up comedy award which ~30 people in the entire world would’ve heard of (a Golden Doustie, if you must know).
I also post to LessWrong.
If you think you or I could benefit from us talking, feel free to reach out or schedule a call.
