Animal advocacy researcher. Visiting fellow at Rethink Priorities in animal welfare. Organizer for Effective Altruism Waterloo. Former animal welfare research intern at Charity Entrepreneurship and research fellow at Animal Charity Evaluators.

Background mostly in pure math and machine learning, but also some in statistics/​econometrics and agricultural economics. Earned to give in deep learning at a startup for 2 years for animal charities, and now trying to get into effective animal advocacy research. Curious about s-risks.

Suffering-focused, anti-speciesist, prioritarian, consequentialist. Also, I like math and ethics.

My shortform.

[Question] Why does (any par­tic­u­lar) AI safety work re­duce s-risks more than it in­creases them?
