Hello! I’m Saffron. I’m a technologist, researcher, writer and curious cat. I’m currently a research engineer at DeepMind, investigating things like conceptual understanding, language models, and ethics & safety. I spend my free time dabbling, reading, writing, and trying to eat life.

Current dabbles include writing about crypto and governance and working on a decentralized glossary project. Other things I like at the moment: mountains, sci-fi, Morning Pages, word games, programming, poetry, philosophy, philosophy of technology, political theory.

I graduated in 2020 from Harvard with a degree in Applied Math-Computer Science. I got minors in Government and German (aber mein Deutsch ist schrecklich). Oh also, I grew up in New Zealand and am now London-based.
