Charles Yang - About

Hi, I’m Charles Yang! Welcome to my little island floating out in the vast internet!

I’m trying to structure my thoughts more coherently by writing more - follow along for the journey if you want!

Currently working on:

Currently thinking about:

  • How to encourage right-to-repair and battery recycling
  • phytomining(ARPA-E RFI Response), biomass-based carbon sequestration and hydrogen generation, and mass timber
  • The insane technology/cultural adoption curves necessary to fight climate change, spanning from building codes to carbon dioxide removal to transmission planning to bike lanes
  • What I like and don’t like about progress studies/effective altruism (having spent my 2020 Summer doing the Oxford EA In-depth Fellowship)
  • How to form a more perfect union. And a more perfect commonwealth of Virginia
  • Trying to understand supply chains and the modern financial economy
  • political economy and state capacity

Previously working on:

Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and do not lean on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge Him, and He will make straight your paths. Be not wise in your own eyes; fear the Lord, and turn away from evil.
