I am a researcher at the Institute for Futures Studies and a Docent (Associate Professor) of Practical Philosophy at Stockholm University.

From July 2019 to July 2024 I will be a Pro Futura Scientia Fellow at the Swedish Collegium for Advanced Study.

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.
