Pourya Omidi works as a project developer for Waag’s Future Internet Lab and Commons Lab. He was eighteen years old when he moved to the Netherlands to study electrical engineering at TU Delft while mastering Dutch. After his study, he started his professional journey in the commercial climate and gained a lot of experience in the high-tech software and (embedded) hardware domain. For a period of four years, he co-founded a medical startup and worked on the development of a diagnostic tool for cardiac patients. Gradually, his interest in the ethics and impact of technology grew and for that reason he joined Waag to pursue this ambition.
