I live in a small village in the middle of Israel. Married with 4 children.
I helped MIRI out as Research Associate from 2011-14, publishing, lecturing, and making connections in Israel.. I have worked as a software architect and development manager and am now pursuing my own venture. Earlier, I got a PhD in Semitic Philology at Harvard and a BA in Math from Brandeis.
I'm always glad to be contacted by interesting people. If you hang around LW, that probably includes you. So, feel free to send me a private message.
I have experience in some areas and might be able to help.
- Software career, with sub-areas including coding, architecture, technical evangelism, etc.
- Getting a PhD
- Outreach on FAI (articles, lectures, meeting with relevant people, etc.)
I'm not looking for a job or hiring right now.
I'm interested in boosting person-to-person networking through LW, whether for business or personal purposes.
