In the decades to come, advances in biotechnology could bring new risks to both humans and ecosystems. This research focuses on investigating and mitigating the worst possible of these risks, those that could threaten human civilization itself. This interdisciplinary initiative is a collaboration with the Future of Humanity Institute. It utilises a variety of tools ranging from dynamical systems and stochastic processes to case studies and public policy.
Gregory completed a medical degree and an MPhil in Public Health (both from Cambridge) and joins the group after time as a junior doctor and public health trainee. His DPhil, supervised by Mike Bonsall, investigates theoretical properties of Global Catastrophic Biological Risks (GCBRs). He also researches similar topics at the Future of Humanity Institute.
