A research scientist at Stanford University was found to have signed on the $250 million bail bond for the release of Sam Bankman-Fried.

Dr. Andreas Paepcke, a Senior Research Scientist at Stanford University, was among the co-signees apart from SBF’s parents. Paepcke is said to be working on user interfaces and systems in the areas of teaching and learning.
