My name is Jim Cavera, which is probably just as you expected. If this comes as a surprise to you, seriously — read the titles on the site. Or double-check the URL that you typed. Anyway, I am a scientist, engineer, sometimes-writer, and sometimes-artist. If you want to see my resume… ummm, you actually want to see my resume?! Just look me up on LinkedIn. I should be easy to find and I do keep that updated (on an irregular, whenever-I-feel-like-it basis).
If you really want to hire me, here are some things I can do…
- Write any sort of code in damn near any programming language
- Design and build a test system for just about anything
- Do something with data communication, particularly if related to air- and space-craft
- Explain to almost anyone, almost anything about science or engineering
- Provide scientific or engineering work for an art project
- Design and build electronic things (so long as they are low to moderate complexity)
- Engineer lasers, nuclear reactors, particle accelerators, vacuum, and cryogenic systems
Yep, all of that and still no superpowers. Damn.
Papers that I’ve written that I’m sorta happy with…
Obviously, a very small subset of all of the papers that I’ve actually written.
