About Me

A Picture of Shaun sitting on an abandoned roof in JerusalemI am Shaun Regenbaum, and I do a lot of things.

Most of my time is currently consumed by making a company. In the long term, I hope to make the internet a better place, and in the short term I am figuring out the details.

In my spare time, I study biomedical engineering and applied physics at Georgia Tech and work on a variety of projects with the GT Jewish Digital Humanities Lab. I actually recently released my first open source package, with Dan Jutan.

In the past I have done a bunch of different things, so if you want a history:

In 2020, I worked on the hardware for a novel sleep apnea detection system. I worked within the Mbed, Arduino, and ST-Micro environments. Using STM’s HAL, I wrote custom drivers for high throughput data collection and storage. I became quite adept in the world of C/C++ and hardware.

In 2020, I was also an undergraduate researcher in The Jordan Lab, working on population genomics. My work was the first of its kind to utilize RNA Variant Calls for local admixture and population stratification.

Most importantly in 2020, Dan Jutan and I co-founded the GT Jewish Digital Humanities Lab (the first funded student run lab at the institution and perhaps in the country). Our primary goal has been the development of the first native online Talmud experience for the millions of people who learn the ancient text. A [very early] demo can be found here! We also have released our first open source package! Finally, we also excited to be working together with Sefaria on a number of cool projects.

Since 2019, I have been the primary bioinformatician in the Tissue Dynamics Lab (a part of the Nahmias Lab) at Hebrew University, tasked with managing the RNASeq pipeline and incoming genomic data. My first paper, published in Science, can be found here.

In 2019, I lead a data-analytics research project with Dr. Joel Sokol that was aimed towards helping various graduate admissions teams at Georgia Tech make more-informed decisions by utilizing the large amounts of data collected from past applicants.

In 2018, I studied for a year at Yeshivat Birkat Moshe (ברכת משה) in Maaleh Adumim (מעלה אדומים) to study Biblical and Talmudic Literature, as well as general Jewish philosophy and history. I was privileged to learn directly under famed Israeli author, Rabbi Chaim Sabato.

In 2017,  I sold my first company, Flash Foto Events, which (at the time) was one of the largest event photography firms in Georgia. I had worked on the company since the start of high school (circa 2013).  I also joined the startup Freshub for a number of months and automated their QA pipeline.

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.

If you want to know more about me, you might find something on my LinkedIn, Github, Medium, YouTube, Google Scholar, Twitter, or random other online presences (such as CBMA, Yavneh, or Khan Academy).
