I worked as a research engineer IC design for SOCs (System on chip) used in HDD/SSD storage devices at Semiconductor Solutions Division of Broadcom Limited. During my work, I filed five US patents in the field of DFT - ASIC design to improve the IO observability in large scale semiconductor chips. I also have the experience in the algorithms behind the autonomous systems (Drones/Self-Driving Cars) and its implementation challenges at chip level in semiconductors for automotive applications. As a side project, I am currently working on formalizing the safety-model developed by Mobileye (one of the leaders in the self-driving technology vertical) for the safety of A.I. in the mobility.

Apart from IC design, I also have a background in theoretical physics, and in my free time is mostly reading on the topics related to the automatic proof theory and the univalent foundation of mathematics.

I also started and founded Riyaaz. It is a startup based in Amsterdam where along with my business partner SOWISO, we are exploring how to add intelligence to the text-based mathematical content. SOWISO has developed an amazing web-platform to create advance level intelligent mathematics content. This is a unique technology which is not offered by any of the leading ed-tech platform such as Udacity, EdX and Coursera. Their web books are already in use in most of the universities of the Netherlands. If you wish to know more about the platform and the intelligent books, feel free to reach out to me at
