Hi, I’m Raffi, a software engineer in Philadelphia. A career switcher, I taught interdisciplinary studies and philosophy at the University of Pennsylvania for half a decade. Before that, while writing a doctoral dissertation about Spinoza in Princeton’s philosophy department, I taught English literature in a prison. And before that, I co-founded a VC-backed public-benefit company, OpenHatch, where I was a full-stack developer. I have given talks about my research and/or products at Google’s Mountain View headquarters and in ten countries. Some of my research was published last year. These days, if I’m not at my desk doing virtual co-working, I might be in the kitchen making noodles. Say hello at firstname.lastname@example.org and @rafpaf.
