Andrew Gritsevskiy


Hi! I'm Andrew, a researcher who loves to learn about the world, make things, and go on adventures.

I'm always excited to meet new people, so if you want to go hiking together, do a puzzle hunt, play a duet, or sneak into an oceanography conference, send me an email at !


My background is in deep reinforcement learning, complexity theory, and quantum information, though I am currently working on AI alignment at Cavendish Labs and MATS. I am also quite interested in interdisciplinary approaches to neuroscience, drug development, and astronomy.

Things I Enjoy

You can always email me at ; you can also find me on Twitter and GitHub.

I am currently in the Berkeley, CA area, if you want to meet!

Mailing List

Sign up for my email list and I'll notify you when I make new things! (Usually less than 1 email per month.)
