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 heterogeneous or conflicting interests and incentives. Mixing anthropological methods and agent-based modelling, Shahar works with other CSER researchers and others in the existential risk community to identify and design opportunities for impact. He is a co-lead author (with Miles Brundage) of the report The Malicious Use of Artificial Intelligence, and managed the development of the Superintelligence mod for the popular strategy game Civilization V.
