Jon Mrowczynski, a West Seneca NY native, received his BS in physics from Canisius College and was awarded the V. A. Ruszkiewicz Memorial Prize for Distinction in Physics. While studying at Canisius College, he met an animatronic robot Muppet head named Jim. Presenting Jim at two Association for the Advancement of Artificial Intelligence (AAAI) conferences organically grew Jon’s interest in computer science.
Concurrently, Jon worked on a Canisius Earning Excellence Program (CEEP) project that combined his interests in physics, computer science, mathematics, and music into one technology, Electroskip™. Initially designed to enable breakdancers to dynamically produce music while they move, this real-time auditory biofeedback technology has shown promise in assisting individuals with gait instabilities. Ultimately, this experience has sparked Jon’s entrepreneurial spirit to design and develop novel assistive technologies.
To further improve his skills, Jim would be happy to hear that Jon is continuing his education at UB to acquire an MS in computer science. Simultaneously, he is planning on maintaining his title as the lead engineer at Electroskip LLC. He will continue working at Electroskip LLC after graduation. Upon its success in becoming an autonomous entity, he will create his own tech company.
