My scholarly work focuses on understanding the various global-scale risks facing humanity this century for the purpose of devising strategies to mitigate or eliminate these risks. In a phrase, I want to make the world as good as possible for the younger generations among us and those who haven't yet been born. To date, I've published in numerous top-tier academic journals, as well as popular media websites like Motherboard, Slate, Nautilus, and the Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists. I hope to continue this work with the financial support of those who, like me, also care deeply about existential risk reduction. For more, go to: www.risksandreligion.org.
Goals
$20 of $500 per month
I'm in an unusual transitional phase of my life right now, and am very low on funds to support myself (and thus my scholarship). $500 per month would -- given how frugal I am! -- go a long way toward enabling me to continue my scholarly work without pecuniary disruptions. For example, I would much rather spend my days (which often involve ~10 hours of work) focusing on existential risk mitigation research than writing popular media articles for Salon, Motherboard, Nautilus, etc. (all of which pay a pittance, anyway). Thanks so very much for your kind support. Please do NOT give if you can't, of course!!
