Hello, I'm Gabe Mukobi! I am a Stanford M.S. student in Computer Science building a career in AI safety, alignment, and governance research. Additionally, as an AI safety field-builder, I lead the Stanford AI Alignment student group and research community.

Currently, my research focuses on technical AI governance, or AI/ML research that improves our capacity to govern and regulate advanced AI systems but isn't strictly alignment or capabilities. Particularly, I've been working on evaluating, securing, and preventing the misuse of language model systems. Read my list of current research projects here and my agenda of research questions here.

My other interests include animal welfare, games, music, film, 3D art, photography, virtual reality, fantasy, and tea!
