Nick is a fancy doctor of philosophy who works at the Future of Humanity Institute. He usually listens to audiobooks at 2x speed. Nick studies existential risk, population ethics, and decision theory—usually as relates to the long term future of humanity. He always gives Killian a high-five when she sneaks a good crime film reference into conversation, and we all know Killian likes to surround herself with people who reward her [awesome] jokes with praise.
