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. Later, I led the development of machine learning infrastructure at Omada Health, led engineering at an early layer two protocol called Truebit (my writing and demo), and worked on ecosystem development at the Ethereum Foundation (my talk at Devcon4).
I now invest and work with founders. I am an investor in projects including Flashbots, Phantom, Privy, Sound, Splits, Socket, Goldfinch, PartyDAO, Llama, Worldcoin, Farcaster.
I have conversations about technology on Into the Bytecode.
