description

I have been interested in computer science since I was six years old, and have built up an unmatched passion for the field. I have extensive experience in software development and research from internships, projects, and competitions. I graduated from the Georgia Institute of Technology with a Bachelor of Science in Computer Science with a focus in system architecture and theory, and am working as a Researcher at the Georgia Tech Research Institute.

SemanticModels.jl - https://github.com/jpfairbanks/SemanticModels.jl

* Research funded by the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA)

* A category theory approach to defining metamodeling tasks for representing and composing scientific models

* A system for extracting semantic information from scientific code and reconciling it with conceptual descriptions to build a knowledge graph

Corsair Database

* Research funded by the Office of Naval Research (ONR)

* Developed a web application for viewing and analyzing sonar SAS data using Go, Python, and PostgresDB deployed with Docker and Drone.io

* Engineered a database for managing scientific experiments to utilize the speed and efficiency of using a rigid relational database, while being flexible enough to handle the changing data requirements of scientific experimentation

notes

Outside of the field of computer science I have many hobbies and passions including Ultimate Frisbee, coffee, and music.

At Georgia Tech and the greater Atlanta area, I am a very active member of the Ultimate Frisbee community. This includes playing on multiple competitive teams throughout the years and competing in tournaments nationally and globally.

I have been an avid coffee enthusiast for several years, frequenting many coffee shops, getting to know local coffee roasters and baristas, and hand brewing my own craft coffee.

Growing up I was very involved with band and played many instruments including piano and flute. Nowadays I don’t play very often, but love to attend concerts and live music events.
