about me

I am an artificial intelligence (AI) PhD candidate, advised by Tim Rocktäschel and Edward Grefenstette, at the UCL DARK lab. I also serve as a research analyst at the Cooperative AI Foundation.

I’m interested in studying techniques to ensure Scalable Oversight. I consider these problems primarily in the setting of multi-agent learning.

My research is shaped by my AI safety concerns. I’ve developed machine-learning systems at Tractable and Spherical Defence Labs. These are active systems interacting and learning in the real world.

I received my MPhil in Computer Science from the University of Cambridge, where I had the pleasure of working with Hatice Gunes. For my undergraduate, I studied Mathematics and Physics, spending a year abroad at the University Of Toronto. For a more in-depth account, see my resume.

I’m more than just my research, feel free to explore my site and see what excites me.
