About Me

My research focuses on bounded rationality, judgment and decisionmaking, and longtermism.

Just a relevant piece of information: the ANU summer visitors season is one of the biggest and most impactful summer events in philosophy and tends to have a big impact on the careers and research trajectory of people who do it. It's something of a "who's who, and who would like to do cool things during their summer" of philosophy. They're also very strong in the relevant fields. I did the ANU visitors season largely because I'd learn more decision theory there than at Harvard.

Well I'll be darned - thanks Austin! Honestly wasn't expecting to wake up and find my project over-target within 12 hours of posting. I appreciate the support -- will acknowledge publicly unless you'd prefer that I don't.
