Hello, I'm James, a developer from New Jersey, and a Senior at Cornell University studying Economics and Information Science, concentrating in Networks, Crowds, and Markets, as well as Interactive Technologies. I am always trying to learn new technologies and develop projects, which range from web design to TTL computing and 3D printing.
The largest yearly programming competition held on Cornell's Campus, with over 500 students from around the country in attendance. Students in teams work for 36 hours on a programming project, competing for many prizes from the organization and various sponsors. Started on the logistics team, being appointed as team lead for Spring 2020, and Executive Director for 2021.
Yearly model United Nations conference, with hundreds of students from multiple universities in attendance. Worked on conference staff during the 2019 event, being promoted to Director of Operations for 2020, and Director General for 2021, being responsible for all operational requirements and oversight.
Between March of 2017 and December of 2018, I was a Software Engineering Intern at BrightLogic, Inc., a company that specializes in interactive LED floors as well as mobile application development. At BrightLogic, I worked on projects that ranged from cross-platform Mobile Application Development for the service industry to floor sensor data visualization.
The 8 Bit-Processor Project is a physical version of an 8 bit processor created on breadboards that I created after reading materials from a professor at Redeemer College, my high-school computer science teacher, and Ben Eater's 8-Bit processor. During my senior year of High School, I designed a subset of the 6502 processor as an extension to this project, which will be used as a curriculum for the Processors II course at my high school, where students build a processor at the circuit level. The project included building a physical model of the original 8-bit processor to understand each component at the physical circuit level, which is pictured at right.
The Water Conservation System is an undersink device used to detect and stop the flow of water. This not only conserves water but can stop a sink from overflowing, causing damage to the home if left running accidentally. The WCS was developed in the Mechatronics Research Lab at The Bergen County Academies and won two awards at the North Jersey Regional Science Fair as well as being a winner of the North Jersey Steam Tank Competition. The WCS also won 3rd place in Engineering out of 40 projects at BCA Expo, an ISEF affiliated science fair.
