I’m Michael Aird, a Senior Research Manager at Rethink Priorities and guest fund manager at the Effective Altruism Infrastructure Fund. Opinions expressed are my own. You can give me anonymous feedback at this link.

With Rethink, I’m mostly focused on helping lead our AI Governance & Strategy team. I also do some nuclear risk research, give input on our Generalist Longtermism team’s work, and do random other stuff.

Previously, I did a range of longtermism-y and research-y things as a Research Scholar at the Future of Humanity Institute, a Summer Research Fellow at the Center on Long-Term Risk, and a Researcher/​Writer for Convergence Analysis. More on my background here.

I also post to LessWrong sometimes.

If you think you or I could benefit from us talking, feel free to message me or schedule a call. For people interested in doing EA-related research/​writing, testing their fit for that, “getting up to speed” on EA/​longtermist topics, or writing for the Forum, I also recommend this post.
