Brian graduated from Miami University with a B.S. in Electrical Engineering and a B.A. in Mathematics. It was there that he began his research on the use of Global Navigation Satellite Systems (GNSS) for remote sensing of the Earth atmosphere. Soon after graduating, Brian moved to Colorado State to continue his studies under direction of his mentor Dr. Jade Morton. He is currently pursuing his Ph.D. in Electrical Engineering.
While born and raised in Ohio, United States, the global nature of Brian’s research has him interacting well beyond US borders. In the of summer 2014, Brian lived and worked in Lima, Peru as part of the Jicimarca Radio Observatory International Research Experience program. He works on a research team that deploys GNSS receivers to geographically diverse locations such as Greenland, Singapore, and Hong-Kong, and he recently returned to Peru for a deployment as well as to attend an international summer school on incoherent scatter radar. When he is not traveling, doing research, or in class, he enjoys playing guitar and running long distances.
