Adrian gave an 'exit interview' for our parent organisation, CRASSH:
"Adrian Currie, Research Associate at the Centre for the Study of Existential Risk (CSER), is looking at the relationship between the culture of science, and our capacity to understand, predict and mitigate low probability, high impact events. His work is supported by the Templeton World Charity Foundation as part of the Managing Extreme Technological Riskproject.
Q. Adrian, you've been a Research Associate at CSER, CRASSH for two years. What do you consider the highlight of your time here at the Centre?
I don’t think I can settle on a single highlight: the two years were incredibly rich with opportunities to engage in interdisciplinary research with brilliant people on important topics. I’m particularly proud of editing a special issue in Futures on Existential and Catastrophic Risk, of helping put together an episode of the Naked Scientists on Existential Risk and Mavericks in science and of publishing, with a bunch of collaborators, a paper arguing for a new approach to comparative cognitive work. Oh, I published a book too. That was exciting."
