  • Aaron Martin is in his fourth year in the Rutgers Ph.D. program. He uses a variety of methods to study catastrophic risk and the role of predictive tools and practices in risk governance. Martin’s research examines how organizations and institutions assess uncertainty related to extreme risk and the implications of these assessments for risk policy and decision-making.

    He is currently a Fellow at the Center for Cultural Analysis at Rutgers and has previously held Fellowships at the Global Catastrophic Risk Institute and the Rutgers Center for Historical Analysis. Prior to Rutgers, Aaron spent six years building partnerships between governments, foundations, and human rights organizations in Washington, D.C.
