Maurice Chiodo is a mathematician, working as a Research Associate at the Centre for the Study of Existential Risk, University of Cambridge. He is the co-founder and lead investigator of the Cambridge University Ethics in Mathematics Project, looking at ethical issues that arise in mathematical work, and generating material to help teach the mathematically trained how to foresee and avert such problems. Maurice lectures on Ethics in Mathematics in the faculty of mathematics at Cambridge; one of the few such courses in the world. He holds two PhDs in mathematics, which addressed computable problems in algebra, focusing on how small amounts of additional information can turn problems from being incomputable to solvable. Maurice’s current research aims to develop and promote ethical awareness among those who use mathematics in society.
