Dave Banerjee

Welcome! I am a third-year undergraduate student at Columbia University studying computer science, and I care about making the world a better place, especially for non-human animals. My academic interests lie in ethics, artificial intelligence, nanomaterials, and rationality. I hope my studies better equip me to tackle issues like factory farming, wild animal welfare, global governance, and existential risks.
