I am James Martin Research Fellow at the Future of Humanity Institute, a part of the Oxford Martin School at Oxford University. My research focus on issues of technologies that can change the human condition, low-probability high-impact risks, and how to reason about such uncertain domains. More specifically I have investigated the neuroethics of enhancement of cognition and love, future technologies for large-scale brain emulation, global catastrophic risks, safety of artificial intelligence, and how risk models can lead us astray.
I got my Ph.D. in computer science 2003 at Stockholm University with a dissertation on neural network models of memory. I was scientific producer for Swedish Travelling Exhibitions’ exhibition “Se Hjärnan!” 2003-2006. I am currently senior researcher for a research collaboration between FHI and the reinsurance company Amlin about the systemic risks of risk modelling. I am also associated with the Oxford Uehiro Centre for Practical Ethics, the Oxford Oxford Martin Programme on the Impacts of Future Technologies, and the Oxford Centre for Neuroethics.
