Hi there, I'm Jamsheed! 👋
I'm a recent graduate from the UC Berkeley Computer Science program, and I'm currently doing research at the Berkeley Netsys Lab.
In my spare time, I help other students start their own ventures at Hack+.
I'm also a hackathon enthusiast; I'm currently working on Pinnacle, the Olympics of Hackathons. In the past, I've led Los Altos Hacks and CodeDay Bay Area, inspiring high school students to pursue careers in STEM.
In the past, I've worked at Twitter, Apple, Stanford, Udacity, and Gauss Surgical, doing engineering, project management, and research.
I've also been practicing Taekwondo for over 15 years. As a 5th degree black belt, I referee tournaments around the world, train with the UC Berkeley Collegiate Team, and teach Physical Education courses at UC Berkeley for Taekwondo self-defense. I also occasionally teach classes at Tiger Martial Arts.
You can find out more about my specific positions and accomplishments on my LinkedIn or on my resume.
I love creating things that are useful or have an impact on people. Here are a handful of projects that I've worked on:
