me

Hello and welcome to my website! My name is Ben. I’m a Senior Researcher at Rethink Priorities, where my work focuses on the risks and opportunities from a potential future technology called atomically precise manufacturing.

I previously worked as a Senior Research Scholar at the Future of Humanity Institute and in finance as a quantitative analyst. Before then I completed a PhD in DNA nanotechnology at Oxford University. I also used to row a lot.

I’m also the co-founder of EA Pathfinder, providing free 1-1 mentoring to mid-career professionals seeking fulfilling work in EA. Follow us on Twitter and LinkedIn for updates.

I’m into “effective altruism” and “longtermism”, and I’ve signed the Giving What We Can pledge.
