Carlos Mougan

I have a passion for what I do. And, what do I do you will ask? I live at the intersection of AI and it’s field applications. At the moment I research (Marie Sklodowska Curie fello) on model monitoring for performance and AI alignment (ethics, political philosophy and law). I also provide advisory support on applied skills at the Alan Turing Institute.

I am very fortunate to have been able to pursue these passions at world-class research and public institutions.

I currently am a Marie Curie Research Fellow and Ph.D. Candidate in the NoBias European Innovative Training Network.
