I grew up in Iran and moved to Canada at age 14. I studied physics in university and contributed to a paper on the nanostructure of graphene while at the Max Planck Institute in Germany. I then moved to San Francisco where I led the development of machine learning infrastructure at Omada Health and worked on independent projects like using data to book a concert. Later, I led engineering at an Ethereum infrastructure project called Truebit (my explainer and demo), and worked on ecosystem development at the Ethereum Foundation (my talk at Devcon4).
I also meditate and have spent a number of months on silent retreat.
You can find me on Twitter.
