I am a final year DPhil student (part of the AIMS CDT programme) supervised by Alessandro Abate and Michael Wooldridge. Before Oxford, I completed an MSci in Natural Sciences (Physics) at Christ’s College, Cambridge and spent two summers working for ATLAS, CERN. I have also worked for the Centre for the Study of Existential Risk, a think tank dedicated to studying and mitigating risks threatening human extinction, and several start-ups. I enjoy teaching - to students of all ages and abilities - and in my spare time, I’m often running, cycling or debating politics and philosophy. I'm motivated by problems aimed at building safe, scalable, and beneficial AI systems.
