Geoffrey Miller

I'm been active since 2016, and have given half a dozen talks on EA-related topics such as virtue-signaling, moral psychology, and X-risks of SETI and METI; I've taught a college seminar on 'The psychology of Effective Altruism' three times. Otherwise, I've worked for 30 years in evolutionary psychology, intelligence research, behavior genetics, economics, consumer behavior, and machine learning. I'm doing a partial mid-career pivot into AI safety research and policy.
