Anan Copty is the Founder and CEO of NIMD Ltd
Anan received the B.S. degree in physics from Gordon College, Wenham, MA, in 1994, the M.S. degree in physics from Boston College, Chestnut Hill, MA, in 1998, and a Ph.D. degree in physics at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem, in 2005. In between graduate degrees, he has worked at the Harvard Physics Department in particle trapping experiments, the Harvard–Smithsonian Astrophysics Center, where he built a UV detector to be used in an experiment to study astrophysical plasmas and tested an ultraviolet coronagraph spectrometer, which was launched on the space instrument SOHO. He was also with the Harvard Medical School, Boston, MA, where he designed RF coils and used them for magnetic resonance imaging and spectroscopic studies. He has also been a Staff Scientist in the R&D division of Radiation Monitoring Devices Inc., Watertown, MA, where he was involved in developing avalanche photodiodes for medical device and energy harvesting applications. During his PhD studies he was involved in the development of near-field microwave applicators and the study of their interaction with biological media and utilized them for medical and biophysical applications. Anan was with Intel Corporation for the last 10 years where for the first part he worked with a technology development group on R&D and exploration of new technologies including radio-frequency MEMS devices, high frequency novel vacuum based silicon transistor and bio-sensors. Later, Anan led the device group as well as the yield & manufacturing departments at Intel in the development and production of the most advanced transistors. He was instrumental in startup phases of the 45nm and 22nm technology nodes where he worked with the development group in Portland as well as manufacturing in Israel for a smooth transition into the production stage. In 2014, Anan also worked as a process expert with an RF Analog Design group on designing a transceiver chip based on the latest 14nm Intel technology. Currently, he started NIMD (NonInvasive Medical Devices) Ltd, a medical device startup company that treats cancer using a combination of microwave beams and nanotechnology.
