Brandon Thomas is a triple major undergrad at Southern Polytechnic State University in the Computer Science, Biology, and Chemistry programs. Brandon loves science, uses Linux and vim, and programs primarily in Python, Javascript, and C++. Computing interests include machine learning and computer graphics. After graduation Brandon intends to study computational metabolomics or possibly found a startup company.


Laser R&D 2012–2013
Projecting colorful radiation in the shape of objects. My laser projector is driven by code I wrote in both Python and C++. Video games on the side of 5-story buildings? Yes, please.
A C++ robot controller daemon that takes instructions over a ZeroMQ socket. Clients have been written for joystick, keyboard, and computer vision/AI control.
Parses Markdown files into presentation slides. Markdown makes writing and editing simple. Includes a timer and transition effects.
Displays a wall of webcams or security cameras. Beware of memory leaks; page auto-refresh to purge memory needs to be implemented.
Designed to replace proprietary paywall software published by expensive textbook companies. Work in progress.
A copyleft videogame strategy guide wiki.



Discusses a paper on building a Boolean network representing the T-Cell signaling pathways downstream of the TCR.
Computational tools for optimizing analytical chemistry techniques for exploration of the metabolome.
Presentation on Hantavirus molecular biology and pathology.
My 60-minute presentation on the physiology of Alzheimer's disease with respect to the Amyloid-β and Tau hypothesis.
