I work on building New Science and I spend the majority of my time thinking how to make life sciences research better and what the future of academia looks like. If you’re reading this and you do anything biology-related at all, I would love to talk to you and would especially appreciate you getting in touch.

My long-term goal is to make the future humane, aesthetic, and to make it happen faster. My biggest intellectual influences are Scott Alexander and Gwern.

Please direct New Science-related inquires to alexey@newscience.org. For everything else, you can contact me at alexey@guzey.com or via Twitter, Telegram, Facebook or VK.
