Biography:

Dr Shahar Avin is a Postdoctoral Researcher in the Centre for the Study of Existential Risk (CSER) at the University of Cambridge. His research examines challenges and opportunities in the implementation of risk mitigation strategies, particularly in areas involving high uncertainty and heterogenous or conflicting interests and incentives.

Mixing anthropological methods and agent-based modelling, Shahar works with other CSER researchers and others in the X-risk community to identify and design opportunities for impact.
