Hi there, I'm Agus 👋

“Somewhere, something incredible is waiting to be known.” — Carl Sagan

I’m a generalist and open sourcerer that does a bit of everything, but perhaps nothing particularly well. I’m currently founding an organization focused on providing non-monetary support to AI Safety groups worldwide (details to come).

I’m very passionate about computer science, cybersecurity and using tech for social impact. Most of my work is interdisciplinary, spanning everything from edtech to metascience, and I’ve also been involved in public policy, campaigning and activism.

I’ve been working for a few years under the umbrella of the Effective Altruism community, and I think mitigating the risk of extinction from AI should be a global priority alongside other societal-scale risks such as pandemics and nuclear war. This is my main focus right now.

ℹ️ I hold drop-in hours each saturday to talk about Effective Altruism, AI Safety and open source. Feel free to pass by.
