Jim James



Hi There!

I’m Jim James, an incoming third year student at the Georgia Institute of Technology. I’m pursuing my bachelor’s degree in computer science with the Intelligence and Theory threads, as well as a minor in mathematics. After my undergrad, I wish to pursue a Ph.D and conduct research in the realm of machine learning or computer vision.

I am very passionate about free software and privacy, and I’m working on decreasing my dependence on proprietary services. I really enjoy astronomy and wildlife photography, which you’ll see a lot of on this site!

For astrophotography, I shoot on:

  • Telescope: Apertura AD8 Dobsonian
  • Tracking: DIY OnStep setup (Work in progress! Check for updates on blog)
  • Planetary Camera: SVBONY 305M Pro
  • DSO Camera: Sony a7R III

For wildlife photography, I shoot on my Sony a7R III with a Sony 200-600mm lens.

That aside, I like to spend my freetime cycling, (poorly) designing electronics and mechanical systems, and sometimes beating my friends in Smash as Shulk.
