Jeremy is currently a hardware engineer at Google [x], where he designs electronics on the Google Glass team.
Jeremy Blum recently received his Master's degree in Electrical and Computer Engineering from Cornell University, where he previously received his Bachelor's degree in the same field. At Cornell, he oversaw the design and creation of several sustainable buildings around the world and domestically through his founding and leadership of Cornell University Sustainable Design, a nationally recognized sustainable design organization that has been specifically lauded by the CEO of the U.S. and World Green Building Councils.
In that vein, Jeremy has applied his passion for electrical engineering to design solar home energy monitoring systems, revolutionary fiber-optic LED lighting systems, and sun-tracking smart solar panels. He is also responsible for helping to start a first-of-its-kind entrepreneurial co-working space that contributes to the development of dozens of student start-ups (including some of his own creation) every year.
Jeremy has designed award-winning prosthetic control methods, gesture-recognition systems, and building-automation systems, among many other things. He designed the electronics for the MakerBot Replicator 3D printers (which are used by people around the world and by notable organizations such as NASA) and the prototype electronics and firmware for the MakerBot Digitizer 3D Scanner. As a researcher in the renowned Creative Machines Lab, he has contributed to the creation of robots that can assemble themselves, self-learning quadrupedal robots, and 3D printers that redefine personal manufacturing. He has presented this research in peer-reviewed journals, and at conferences as far away as India.
Jeremy produces YouTube videos that have introduced millions of people to engineering and are among the most popular introductory Arduino tutorials on the Internet. He is well known within the international open source and "maker" communities for his development of open source hardware projects and tutorials that have been featured on the Discovery Channel and have won several awards and hack-a-thons. Jeremy was selected by the American Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers as the 2012 New Face of Engineering.
He offers engineering consulting services through his firm, Blum Idea Labs LLC, and he teaches engineering and sustainability to young students in New York City. Jeremy's passion is improving people's lives and our planet through creative engineering solutions. You can learn more about Jeremy and his work at his website: http://www.jeremyblum.com.
