Arushi Gupta

I'm the full-time Co-Director of Effective Altruism NYC, and I got involved with the Effective Altruism movement in 2017. I co-founded the Effective Altruism at NYU the same year, while studying Computer Science at NYU. Before this, I worked as a tech product manager, and I started a vision health nonprofit in India. I'm also very interested in public policy, especially related to tech and climate.

I have experience in computer science, political activism, EA community building, and non-profit entrepreneurship. I'm also always happy to chat about people’s careers!
