Aaron Gertler ’15 is the founder of Yale Effective Altruists. He likes effective altruism because it promotes clear thinking and makes the future a better place to live. When he’s not trying to improve the world, he moonlights as the chairman of the Yale Record, one of the world’s oldest humor magazines. He’s a Cognitive Science major, and spends a lot of time thinking about how to convince people to do things. He also writes a blog on many topics, including effective altruism.
