Hey there! My name's Jacob. I live in Ypsilanti, MI, and I'm a systems programmer and computer science student. I'm currently looking for work starting after I graduate in August 2020.
Things I'm working on
B.S.E. in Computer Science from UMich
In Fall 2016, I started at the University of Michigan's school of engineering. By the time I finish, I'll have taken courses in algorithms, cryptography, computer security, operating systems, networks, and more.
Refraction Networking is a method for circumventing censorship which integrates directly into the network, rather than existing as individual endpoints, making it much harder to detect and block. I'm currently working on the project as a research assistant with the goal of adding TLS 1.3 support.
Open Source Software
When I write software, I like to write it in a way that I can share it with the whole world. On my GitHub I've shared code for remote-controlling Roku TVs, a ready-to-deploy Stripe checkout server, a split encryption tool, and more.
