I'm a Postdoctoral Fellow at UC Berkeley, where I'm affiliated with the Kavli Center for Ethics, Science, and the Public.

Previously, I did a PhD in Philosophy at Princeton University, a BPhil in Philosophy at Oxford University and a BA in Philosophy, Politics, and Economics at Warwick University.

My research is primarily in ethics. I am particularly interested in questions about preserving value, the nature of well-being, technology ethics, and the future of humanity.

Here is my CV.

I am originally from a small town near Warsaw, Poland. My first name, MichaƂ, is pronounced there 'Me-how', but I go by the standard English 'Michael'.

In my spare time, I enjoy endurance sports, especially running. I train daily, and race marathons and ultramarathons. On the ultramarathon side, I've done several 50Ks, one 50-miler, two 100K races, and a 100-miler.
