About me

I'm a PhD student at the University of Oxford, working at the Future of Humanity Institute and the Nuffield Department of Medicine. My thesis is focused on developing early warning systems to enable the detection of emerging pandemics, working together with the Nucleic Acid Observatory. Additionally, I am a part of the Emerging Leaders in Biosecurity Fellow at the Johns Hopkins Center for Health Security.

Previously, I was an intern at Biological Weapons Convention ISU, at the United Nations Office for Disarmament Affairs, a researcher at the laboratory robotics company Synthace, and a member of the Governance and Policy committee at iGEM. Before that, I completed a master's degree in Medical Therapeutics at the University of Cambridge and a BSc. in Biomedical Sciences at the University of Warwick. During my time at Warwick, I was in an iGEM team –we won a gold medal, woop!

I spend a lot of my time thinking about existential risk and future people. My work and life are motivated by ambitiously trying (and likely failing, but still trying) to save as many lives as possible.
