I'm Idan Korenblum, a psychiatry resident at the Chaim Sheba Medical Center in Israel. I also teach at the University of Haifa's Faculty of Social Welfare and Health Sciences.
In my academic work, I primarily focus on a relatively new field known as computational psychiatry. I'm particularly interested in how we can use computation to better understand ourselves.
My intellectual areas of interest lie in the realms of consciousness, ontology, cosmology, psychedelic experiences, the simulation hypothesis, and these kinds of creatures.
When I'm not thinking about the meaning of life (which happens sometimes), I enjoy skateboarding, playing chess, solving CTFs and other puzzles, watching true crime documentaries, reading mind-bending sci-fi books, and listening to Terence McKenna before I fall asleep.
I'm greatly inspired by Karl Friston and Joscha Bach.
Feel free to contact me.
