What does Artificial Intelligence mean for our collective decision-making? How does automation affect geopolitics and how will policy-makers respond?
I am fascinated by the impact of emerging technologies on society and often ask myself questions like the ones above. By answering these, my goal is to understand how the legislative environment should evolve to make the most of technological progress. I keep the big picture in mind and always consider the potential reactions of civil society and the strategic value of multi-stakeholder dialogues.

Combined with hard work and a dash of entrepreneurship, these enable me to bring people truly together to accomplish projects greater than themselves. Here are a few examples of what I have been up to lately.
