Electrical Engineering, Dartmouth 2021
Physics and Chemistry, Hobart 2020
James Monaco is a senior majoring in electrical engineering at Dartmouth ('21) and both physics and chemistry at Hobart and William Smith Colleges ('20), participating in a dual-degree program, and minoring in environmental studies.
His chemistry experience was focused in spectroscopy and chemical instrumentation, while his electrical engineering is focused on embedded systems and signal processing / communications. His physics and electrodynamics background has been an essential background in supporting these areas.
James has recently graduated Hobart and William Smith Colleges in the spring of '20, and is finishing up his BE education at Dartmouth's Thayer School of Engineering. He was going to intern at Johns Hopkins Applied Physics Lab, but due to the pandemic is instead working on personal projects with fellow students and local friends, focusing on radio-frequency and satellite communication skills.
James grew up in Boston, where he spent most of his time hiking, camping, and playing music. In his free time, James has a small home shop where he makes things on his lathe, makes knives and sheaths, and enjoys designing things to 3D print. James also spends his free time tinkering with embedded systems including Arduino and FPGA-based projects, and some analog circuits for audio manipulation.
One current project is using software defined radio (SDR) to intercept weather satellites' signals and obtain real-time images of the earth and sun. This project will hopefully scale up to using the SDR for backyard radio astronomy.
