Jaimie Carlson is a roboticist who, when not programming hunter-killer drones for Amazon, plays quizbowl for the University of Pennsylvania. She previously captained a successful Wilmington Charter team.



Jaimie originally started as a literature player at Wilmington Charter, eventually rising to captain the team her senior year and leading them to a top-10 finish at 2014 PACE NSC.


After beginning a double major in biomedical engineering and computer science, Jaimie immediately made a splash with several high-scoring finishes on Penn B. In 2016, she was promoted to Penn A, where she was on a team that made top bracket at 2016 ICT and 2017 ACF Nationals. In 2018, she was a key element of the team that won 4th at 2018 ICT and 2nd at 2018 ACF Nationals.

Along with Jinah Kim, she forms one-half of the telepathically synchronized duo that Eric Mukherjee refers to as "J-squared".


Jaimie has contributed the plurality of questions to Penn Bowl in 2015, 2016, and 2017, particularly in the literature and arts categories, always completing her assignments weeks before anyone else.
