I think and write about technology and society. Sometimes I build things too. Things I’m currently pondering:

I graduated in 2022 from MIT with a Master’s and Bachelor’s degree in computer science. I’ve also dabbled in economics and philosophy. You can find my complete thesis here, and the thesis-based paper I submitted to AIES here.

In addition to my thesis work, I’m part of the Metagovernance Project, where I helped create a meta-constitution for decentralized organizations.

In the past, I’ve been a data research analyst at the wonderful Center for Security and Emerging Technology, a policy intern at the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy, and a researcher at the MIT Computational Cognitive Science group.

Intellectual influences of mine include Elinor Ostrom, Nadia Aspourahova, and David Chapman. I am deeply grateful to them and their mutuals for inspiring me and shaping my worldview.

Miscellaneous things I love: all of Tom Jobim’s Wave album, William Butler Yeats, Words Without Music, improvisation.

My mailing list is for the occasional personal update and reflection. My substack is for more regular updates on my open source governance research. You can also find me on Twitter.
