I am Associate Professor (Docent) of Practical Philosophy at Stockholm University, Pro Futura Scientia Fellow at the Swedish Collegium for Advanced Study, and (part-time) Advisor at the Institute for Futures Studies.

I am also (since May 2019) associate editor of BJPS (subject area: decision theory and foundations of probability theory).

My current research mostly concerns how one should choose in situations of extreme uncertainty, including situations where one suspects that the outcome of one’s actions (or inaction) could be catastrophic.

I defended my PhD thesis from the London School of Economics in May 2014.

This is what I do when I am not working.
