I’m a London based interaction designer, researcher, and entrepreneur. I view the world as a series of interconnected social graphs with hundreds of embedded complex systems. I want to perturb the graphs to a more connected, transparent and fair configuration for both the flow of ideas and value. I am genuinely interested in artificial & natural intelligence; complexity, culture & society; AI ethics, safety, & policy.
