My name is Jonathan Browne. I'm an experienced software developer and a computer science student at the University of Texas at Austin. I'm currently a sophomore, but I've been programming since elementary school.
I work on Sponge, an open-source plugin API for Minecraft servers. I've been involved with the project since 2015, and have served as a core developer since 2017.
I'm currently part of UT Austin's Freshman Research Initiative in the Autonomous Robotics stream. Last spring, I helped build a prototype robot status board website for the university's Building-Wide Intelligence research laboratory. Over the summer, I helped with several additional projects at UT inside and outside the BWI lab - an experiment for robots and humans passing each other in a hallway, a virtual robotics camp for high school students, and a pandemic simulator which was published as part of the AAAI Fall 2020 Symposium - AI for Social Good. This semester, I am working as an FRI peer mentor while collaborating on a machine learning project that analyzes human motion to predict a person's trajectory. During the upcoming summer, I will be working as an intern at Vectra.
I'm naturally quiet and thoughtful. I'm very curious; in my spare time, I enjoy learning about and experimenting with different technologies. I also try to be helpful and ethical whenever possible.
