Ex software developer, ex QA. Currently an independent AI Safety researcher.
Prior to working in industry was involved with academic research of cognitive architectures. I'm a generalist with a focus on human-like AIs (know a couple of things about developmental psychology, cognitive science, ethology, computational models of the mind).
Personal research vectors: ontogenetic curriculum and the narrative theory. The primary theme is consolidating insights from various mind related areas into plausible explanation of human value dynamics.
A long-time lesswronger (~8 years). Mostly been active in the local LW community (as a consumer and as an org).
Recently I've organised a sort peer-to-peer accelerator for anyone who wants to become AI Safety researcher. Right now there are 17 of us.
Was a part of AI Safety Camp 2023 (Positive Attractors team).
Open for funding. The past 7 months self-funded my research.
