Nick Bostrom, PhD, is Director of the Future of Humanity Institute, in the James Martin 21st Century School, at Oxford University. He previously taught at Yale University in the Department of Philosophy and in the Yale Institute for Social and Policy Studies. He is the author of more than 130 publications including many in leading academic journals, and his writings have been translated into more than 16 different languages. Bostrom pioneered the concept of existential risk. He developed the first mathematically explicit theory of observation selection effects. He also is the originator of the simulation argument and is the author of a number of seminal studies on the implications of future technologies.

He received his Ph. D. in Physics from the State University of New York at Stony Brook (USA). His primary research interests are in the fields of astrophysical cosmology (baryonic dark matter, star formation, future of the universe), astrobiology (anthropic principles, SETI studies, catastrophic episodes in the history of life), as well as philosophy of science (risk analysis, future studies, foundational issues in quantum mechanics and cosmology).
