CV

*I spent a summer interning at Google as a software engineering intern in datacenter platforms.

*I worked as an undergraduate student at Qualcomm Inc. in the the 802.11ad System Team as a PHY ASIC Digital Design Engineer. We made cutting edge Wi-Fi (WiGig) chipsets in the 60 GHz band, leading the world into multi-Gbps Wi-Fi data rates.

*I was an Infosys Instep research intern at Infosys Labs in Bangalore, India. I worked on a research project about “Hybrid Access Control Based Solutions for Cloud Services”. The result was published in the 2015 International Conference on Computing and Network Communications (CoCoNet’15) in Trivandrum, Kerala, India.

*Served as an IDF (Israel Defense Forces) officer in an elite intelligence unit.

*If I tell you what I did, I’ll have to kill you… but if you insist: I was a system officer, leading a team developing automatic intelligence analysis processes for an operational system. Later, I was a staff officer, responsible for strategic planning, analysis, and product development of technology mega-projects.

*A long time ago (after high school), I was a network administrator in B.M Carmel, and I got to set up the network and ERP system for a new remote site in Vermont.

*A longer time ago, I was a youth guide in Madatech - the Israel National Museum of Science (I got to meet Neil Armstrong there!)

Misc

I love traveling. I’ve been to over 40 countries across 6 continents, and (hopefully) still going strong. Whether it’s mountains, beaches, wildlife, outdoors, urban or historic, I’m always happy to explore new places and new cultures.

Antarctica is still an elusive destination, so if you know of a short-term opportunity in Antarctica, I’ll be happy to hear about it.

Here is a sample of my travel map:


My dad got us a family domain a very long time ago (before it was popular). We had a web server in our house. We were also some of the first users of Google Apps (now known as Google G-suite). The web server no longer exists, but a small commemorative website is still out there: www.amidfamily.net


I am active in the Berkeley Hillel graduate student community. I also consider myself on the frontlines of fighting modern Anti-Semitism and Anti-Zionism on US college campuses, and specifically in UC Berkeley. If you have any questions about that, come and talk to me.
