I’m Michael Aird, a Staff Researcher at Rethink Priorities, Research Scholar at the Future of Humanity Institute, and guest 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 currently mostly working on nuclear risk research. I might in future work on topics related to what I’m calling “Politics, Policy, and Security from a Broad Longtermist Perspective”.

Previously, I did longtermist macrostrategy research for Convergence Analysis and then for the Center on Long-Term Risk. 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.
