About Me

I am Shaun Regenbaum, a biomedical engineering undergraduate and the director and founder of the Jewish Digital Humanities Lab at Georgia Tech.

Since high school, I have been fascinated with higher mathematics and theoretical (but experimentally viable) physics.  I participated in the Junior National Breakthrough Challenge hosted by Khan Academy, the M3 Modelling Challenge, the International Physics Safecracking Challenge at the Weizmann/Davidson Institute of Science, the Georgia Tech Fair, the NAJSTF, and many more competitions while in high school. I found some success, winning the NAJSTF numerous times, being a top finisher in the State Tech Fair more than once, being a finalist and the top math finisher in the Breakthrough Challenge, and travelling all the way to Israel to compete at the international level for the Safecracking Competition, but I have moved far past competitions.

I have contributed to a variety of research projects ranging from quantum physics to bioinformatics. This past year (2019) I have been leading a data-analytics research project that is aimed towards helping the graduate admissions team at Georgia Tech to make better decisions in regards to comparing GPAs between the thousands of universities from which they annually receive applicants. I am also the primary bioinformatician in the Tissue Dynamics lab at Hebrew University, tasked with managing the RNASeq pipeline and incoming genomic data. Finally I am the founder and director of the Jewish Digital Humanities Lab at Georgia Tech (the first student run lab at the institution) where we are exploring how we can make the Talmud more interactive and dynamic using web development tools.

In addition, I am an experienced entrepreneur. In high school I grew a small company into one of Atlanta’s largest event photography firms. I then sold that company, Flash Foto Events, and took a gap year in Israel. There, I joined the Freshub team for a number of months and automated their QA process before attending Yeshivat Birkat Moshe (ברכת משה) in Maaleh Adumim (מעלה אדומים) to study in the academic field of Biblical and Talmudic Literature.

I have created this website as a means to provide a creative outlet for myself. I will attempt to display my ideas on possible advancements in many subjects, talk about valuable advice in life, explore my own thoughts and emotions,  and explore further topics by writing about them intuitively. I also will display artwork that I create and poems that I have written.
