Brian is a software developer with an background in Physics, and has academic interests in neural networks, economic theory, formal logic, and statistical mechanics.

Data Analysis

Past work has mostly used traditional/frequentist statistical analysis in coursework and internships, but I have kept up with Bayesian statistics and Machine Learning techniques.

I have been dabbling with neural networks, contributing examples to new deep-learning frameworks, though my work at this time is stalled due to lack of hardware.

Digital Design

I consider myself competent at web design, most recently doing work for Symbiotica Kombucha, including the logo. I have also done volunteer and hobbyist level graphic and web design.

As someone whose blood runs on Linux, I tend to customize my environment for workflow and personality. I have designed color palettes and the tools to generate them using perceptual color spaces for use with web design, graphical toolkit themes, and terminal color themes. As for my desktop environment, I use xmonad.

Software Engineering

Past work has been in scientific computing (data crunching and physical simulation), mostly using Python but more recently Julia, including automated web testing of Escher.jl a Functional Reactive Framework for the technical computing language Julia.

Additional public hobby-level work is available on my Github.


Read-Only Media

Most recently, my primary research interest has been in economic theory, taking a critical approach towards the assumptions and axioms. This also includes the philosophical and historical context of these theories. This comes after delving into mathematical philosophy (consecutively) following interests in formal logic, PL (Programming Language) theory, and stastical mechanics.

Other tangential research interests include quantum physics, and history of science.

Read/Write Media

I also teach for pleasure and for profit. From private tutoring in all areas of mathematics, I take a intuitionist approach a la Brouwer building from what the student already knows via analogies, developing a context, and then following on how to approache the problem with systems-thinking.

I have also lectured at volunteer events, from CryptoParties to Maker-events, also as an instructor for technical skills such as soldering.

I have been considering using Explorable Explanations for the use in education as it offers much more feedback in the learning process, but have not the venue to explore the use of this technique.
