Electrical Engineer, Software Developer, Tinkerer, and Occasional Outdoor Adventurer

Who is Jeff?

I'm an electronics nerd who enjoys building things, especially embedded computing systems. I enjoy code that interacts with physics. In the past I've worked on unmanned aerial vehicles, camera stabilization systems, multispectral sensors, an agricultural remote sensing data service, digital microfluidics devices, and more. Here, I mostly post fun projects. Sometimes silly, sometimes useful. Hopefully at least interesting to a few.

I live in Seattle, and I work at the Molecular Information Systems Lab at UW.

If you want to chat about any of the projects here, about collaborating on some other projects, or about anything really, please don't hesitate to get in touch!
