Brian led a life of educational research, software development, and teaching before joining Fullstack. 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. When Brian grows up he hopes to be a superhero, but in the meantime is focusing on his fascination with optimizing learning environments and experiences, modeling and visualizing data, and helping students learn to create technology with code. Outside of work, Brian enjoys improv, games of all kinds, and being inspired by others’ favorite forms of geekery.
