I am Director of the Governance of AI Program, at the Future of Humanity Institute, University of Oxford. My research seeks to understand the causes of world peace, particularly in the age of advanced artificial intelligence. 

My research focuses on the international politics of transformative artificial intelligence, which I believe poses existential challenges and opportunities. As part of this I consult for governments, AI labs, and non-profits.

My earlier work examined the causes of the liberal peace, and the role of reputation and honor as motives for war. Along the way I developed statistical and methodological tools to enable more transparent, credible causal inference.
