Future Crunch are part of a global movement of scientists, technologists, hackers and creatives that think there are new and better ways of doing things in the 21st century. Their expertise ranges from politics, economics, and bioinformatics to design, art and music. They use their diverse knowledge to provide unexpected perspectives on the world, through the lenses of science, technology and social theory. Their mission is to foster intelligent, optimistic thinking about the future, and to empower people to contribute to it.

Angus is a political economist, journalist and media commentator specialising in the impact of disruptive technologies on society. He is the former community manager for Random Hacks of Kindness, the longest running and largest social hackathon in Australia, and the former editor of Global Policy, one of the world's leading international policy journals. He holds a Masters in Political Economy and a PhD in Government from the London School of Economics, where he was also the Ralph Miliband Scholar between 2009 and 2012.

Tane is a science communicator, futurist and bioinformatician. He has worked for the Royal Children’s Hospital diagnosing rare genetic diseases in children and is currently completing his PhD at the Peter MacCallum Cancer Centre in Melbourne, using molecular biomarkers and artificial intelligence to better understand, diagnose and improve treatment for people suffering from cancer. He is also a former US mountain biking champion, and an avid sailor, participating in races around the world.
