Hey there, I’m Pablo.  I studied philosophy at Buenos Aires, Toronto and Oxford, and currently work as a researcher for the Centre for Effective Altruism, a non-profit that encourages people to do the most good they can.

Bland as it may sound, my one goal in life is to make the world a better place. You can read more about the approach I favor over at the Effective Altruism Blog, which I maintain with my friend Will MacAskill. You can also find me on Facebook, LinkedIn, and elsewhere.

Dancing Argentine tango is my main hobby. I’m also interested in psychology, entrepreneurship, travelling, and classical and modern languages.

I welcome all comments and suggestions.  Email me at pablo@stafforini.com or leave anonymous feedback.


We live during the hinge of history. Given the scientific and technological discoveries of the last two centuries, the world has never changed as fast. We shall soon have even greater powers to transform, not only our surroundings, but ourselves and our successors. If we act wisely in the next few centuries, humanity will survive its most dangerous and decisive period. Our descendants could, if necessary, go elsewhere, spreading through this galaxy.
