Hello, I'm Gabe Mukobi! I am a research fellow at the RAND Corporation and an incoming Computer Science PhD student at UC Berkeley (adv. Jacob Steinhardt and Dawn Song) building a career in AI safety, governance, and alignment research. I did my M.S. and B.S. in Computer Science at Stanford where I founded Stanford AI Alignment.

Currently, my research focuses on technical AI governance, or AI research and technical policy analysis that improves our capacity to govern and regulate advanced AI systems. 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!
