CS grad student and at-risk youth

Hi, I’m Austin Adams, a PhD student at the Georgia Institute of Technology studying quantum computing from a computer architecture perspective. My advisor is Tom Conte.

I graduated from Georgia Tech in 2018 with a Bachelor of Science in Computer Science. Previously, I had attended Kennesaw State University for two years, one of which was full time in my senior year of high school through the Dual Enrollment Honors Program.

The highlight of my time as an undergraduate was working as the head teaching assistant for CS 2110, the intro to computer architecture course at Georgia Tech. When I wasn’t answering emails, I spent a bunch of time writing autograders for digital logic circuits, assembly code, malloc() implementations, and even Gameboy Advance DMA. Here’s some praise from student evaluations.

After graduation, I worked for Amazon in Seattle, Washington, for a little under 2 years on a great team who maintained bulk product uploads to Vendor Central. I haven’t worked on programming projects much lately, but you can see some of my past projects on my projects page.
