I am a philosophy grad researcher hoping to help prevent the AI apocalypse.

No, really...

I am a technoethicist and political philosopher, who is fascinated by the relationship between humanity and technology and the ways that each helps to shape the other. I am currently doing a PhD in the ethics of emerging technologies, like AI, autonomous weapons, cyberwar, etc.

I am hugely passionate about education and social justice. Pre-COVID I could frequently be found at cafes/restraints with superb coffee and food, visiting art galleries, attending plays, or out wandering through the wilderness.

I love music and couldn't live without it in my life! I have very broad musical taste but some of those that come to mind immediately are:
Amanda Palmer
Ben Folds
Sisters of Mercy
Pearl Jam
Nick Cave
Nine Inch Nails
Depeche Mode
The Cure
Pink Floyd

I love to read, but struggle to stay awake when I try to relax with a book these days. My all time favourite author is William Gibson, and I love Bertrand Russell's later works like the Conquest of Happiness and In Praise of Idleness.

I love Dark Cabaret, Theatre, Art, and Travel.
