Hello and welcome to my corner of the Internet! My name is Jeff Wilson. I am a computer scientist specializing in the areas of human computer interaction, accessibility, compilers and 3D printing. I am a graduate student at North Carolina State University pursuing my Masters degree in Dr. Robert St. Amant's Knowledge Discovery Lab in the Department of Computer Science. Currently my research primarily focuses on the use of 3D printing as an assistive technology for the blind and visually impaired.
Before attending N.C. State, I earned my Bachelors of Science degree in Computer Science at Southern Illinois University at Edwardsville. While at SIUe, I began my exploration of compilers, human computer interaction and accessibility while working on the Quorum Programming Language with Dr. Andreas Stefik. In 2011 our lab won the Java Innovation Award for our work on Sodbeans, a derivation of the NetBeans development environment with a variety of accessibility enhancements. In my final year at SIUe, I was awarded a grant from the National Science Foundation's Graduate Research Fellowship Program, which I have used to pursue my current studies at N.C. State.
These days, I spend my time working on my research at N.C. State and participating in the online 3D printing community. I am passionate about using 3D printing technology to improve human computer interaction for everyone, and helping people get their 3D printers working correctly. I am an active member of the Soliforum 3D printing community.
