As a second-generation Iranian immigrant, Alex was always aware that much of the world’s population faces tremendous challenges. He started his career at Goldman Sachs in London with the ambition of leveraging capital markets to help transform the developing world. But his motivation for transitioning into healthcare was personal – like many, he watched a close family member receiving critical care in a clinical setting and realized just how vital it was to help transform the overall healthcare system.
Seeing technology as a more powerful vehicle for change, he pursued an advanced degree in machine learning at École Polytechnique in Paris and was fortunate to spend six months as a visiting researcher at Stanford. That experience inspired his entrepreneurial side and led him to join Nabla, where he built product lines that empowered doctors to be more effective and accessible for underserved populations.
