About me

Johannes Treutlein I am an MSc student in computer science at the University of Toronto, supervised by Roger Grosse. I am broadly interested in AI safety, especially from a theoretical perspective.

Previously, I studied mathematics at the Technical University of Berlin and the University of Oxford and interned at the Center for Human-Compatible AI at UC Berkeley. I am grateful to have been supported by Open Philanthropy and the Center on Long-Term Risk.

My great passion is playing the double bass. Prior to my research career, I studied the double bass in Stuttgart and Nuremberg and played with the Munich Philharmonic.
