I use research, communication and entrepreneurship to work on pressing societal problems.
At the moment, I am particularly interested in understanding how to safely develop and deploy AI for maximum societal benefit.
I have curated a few of my projects below. See my LinkedIn for a more complete list and my Google Scholar for my papers and citations.
Despite hating public speaking, I have featured in the media more than 200 times. In 2020, I was the 16th most media engaged academic at Monash University. My media engagement ranges from articles for The Conversation, The Huffington Post and Psychology Today to TV interviews with channels such as the BBC and ABC News. You can listen to one of my interviews here.
I don't take myself too seriously or rate myself especially highly, and spend a lot of time on self-improvement. View (and copy) my 'annual review' or 'daily tracker' templates.
Outside work, I read, surf, swim and hike, relax in baths and hammocks (though never at the same time), and explore my (too) many interests.
I recommend reading Behave by Robert Sapolsky and If This Is a Man/The Truce by Primo Levi, if you are looking for recommendations.
