Andreas is a doctoral researcher at the Oxford Internet Institute focusing on human control of AI systems in computer network exploitation, defence and attack.

He finished his Master’s in 2020, writing about the Sybil resistance vulnerabilities of democratic governments’ public consultation websites and fora, describing how GPT-2 and Megatron-11b could be used for mass manipulation of public opinion and lawmakers.

He is currently developing the Algorithmic Resistance Cookbook, a guide to using data-driven tools and techniques to practice resistance against intrusive and repressive aspects of present-day algorithmic culture.

Andreas is also building, an open-source and peer-to-peer file-sharing and collaboration tool designed to be privacy-preserving and censorship-resistant. Fileverse is supported by over 14 000 donors.

He also co-founded in 2019.
