Brian's career has spanned teaching, researching, and being a practicing software engineer. His Ph.D. in Computing Education Research focused on how engineering students learn software design. In subsequent post-doctoral research positions, his work expanded to educational games, ethnography of engineering practice, and teaching computational modeling and data science. He then developed enterprise level web apps for educational clients as well as personally developing and releasing Transcriptase, a free qualitative data analysis app available on both Windows and macOS. Outside of work, Brian enjoys improv, games of all kinds, and being inspired by others’ favorite forms of geekery.
