My name is Jacob Karaul. I am a senior Computer Engineering major at Union College in Schenectady, NY. This website serves as an online portfolio to present projects that I've completed or that I'm currently working on.
I was born in New Jersey, however my family moved to Geneva, Switzerland and remained there for 4 years. We then moved to New York City, where I attended school up to and including sixth grade. We then moved to Bangkok, Thailand, where I completed middle and high school at the International School of Bangkok (ISB). I returned to America for college, where my story is still unfolding. The opportunity to live all around the world has made socializing with new people and experiencing diverse cultures a lifetime hobby of mine. I myself am half-Korean and half-Turkish (people often ask).
I am very interested in both the hardware and software side of computer engineering, however more than anything I like broadening my horizons. The best way to immerse oneself in a foreign topic is through active research and development, which is why I like to spend my free time working on side projects.
