How can programmable money align market systems with human values?

Currently, I'm building a new crypto exchange based on strong zero-knowledge cryptography: Renegade.


Previously, I shipped a port of Tornado Cash to Solana, the first zero-knowledge application on the Solana network: Otter Cash.

Before that, I tried to align incentives in politics by making markets on city equity: CityStocks.

I studied pure math and computer science at Berkeley. I was involved with Machine Learning at Berkeley, Accel Scholars, and Berkeley AI Research. I've previously worked at Nuro and Tesla Autopilot.
