Alan Chan

PhD Student



I am a Research Scholar at GovAI and a PhD student at Mila, advised by Nicolas Le Roux and David Krueger. Previously at Amii + UAlberta, I was a MSc student with Martha White.

I work on how to govern a world where AI agents substitute for human labour across a wide variety of commercial, scientific, governmental, and personal activities. I also think about how best to design model evaluations and an evaluation ecosystem.
