About me

Hello! I’m a futurist & environmentalist from Brussels, based in London.

I currently work at Seraphim Capital, the world’s first VC fund for space technology startups. Last year, I co-founded the AIBE Summit – Artificial Intelligence in Business & Ethics, and continue to manage its strategic developments. I’m also the Editor of The Social Humanist, an international journal with articles in Economics, Politics, and Science. As an undergraduate, I studied Law at UCL with a focus on EU & Environmental Law, as well as Philosophy of Science at LSE with a focus on space, time, and metaphysics. This year, I founded the UCL Space Society in partnership with LSE, and will also be serving as Chairman of UCL Green Economy.

My main interests include space, nature, philosophy, and music. In my free time, I enjoy biking and playing guitar & drums. Having worked on various projects, I’m experienced in graphic design, web design, video editing, journalism, and thinking about stuff. My languages include English, French, Turkish, and Spanish. I’m particularly interested in addressing the intersection between space technology and environmental science, whereby the rise in low-cost access to space and small satellites provides unprecedented opportunities in Earth observation for environmental & climate monitoring.

In general, I’m just exploring the big picture. What is the nature of reality? What are the laws that govern our physics? How does artificial intelligence emerge from neural networks? How can we transition towards green cities & sustainability? Are there exoplanets out there with astrobiology? Will we ever become a multi-planetary species? How can we explain such elusive concepts as spacetime, consciousness, and quantum mechanics? Let’s find out!
