Hi, I'm Carter! I'm a research fellow in the Effective Altruism / Global Risk Lab run by Joshua Lewis (NYU) and Lucius Caviola (Oxford), and I'm an incoming PhD student at Berkeley. I previously researched social learning in the Moral Psychology Research Lab at Harvard. I'm interested in moral uncertainty, forecasting, and existential risk.

I really like meeting new people and have an autobiographical friend-me doc here. In my free time I longboard, occasionally write, make really terrible computer music, and play chess. I'm also working on several tools to make doing social science easier - for example, I wrote this code that allows R users to run bootstrapped within-subjects mediation analyses without their (my) computer exploding.

I make mistakes pretty often, and you can give me anonymous feedback about how to make less of them here.

I built this website myself which was a fun project. Soon, I'll update this page with more academic stuff (like my CV, research projects) and any writing or papers I publish (I have four in prep)!
