Tim Fist, Research associate at ALLFED – Alliance to Feed the Earth in Disasters
Tim is a data scientist working with ALLFED to generate evidence-backed solutions to feeding everyone through a global catastrophe. With a background in the space industry working on satellite systems and data, he has since transitioned to working on global catastrophic risks. He received his B.S. (Hons) from Monash University, Australia, completing a double degree in Aerospace Engineering and Philosophy. Tim has been the recipient of several accolades: the SGAC Space Generation Innovators Award for 2017, and the Data Processing VSSEC/NASA Space Prize in 2015. His research interests focus on building our understanding of existential threats and their solutions by integrating real world data and models from under-explored sources, such as remote sensed satellite information.
