Hello! I'm Brian!
- and I am part of the ALGANT program. I am an Erasmus Mundus Student and have sucessfully made it through Padova, Italy, Leiden, Netherlands (Holland), and am heading to Chennai, India. Following Chennai I will pick up missed exams in Europe as well as plan to work on my thesis in Padova.
Originally from Milwaukee, Wisconsin (USA), I moved to Los Angeles, CA 12 years ago in persuit of a higher education. I finished my Bachelors Degree in both Computer Science, with a minor in Mathematics from Cal Poly Pomona.
I have a very unique background in that I have spent several years at both NASA's JPL (Jet Propulsion Laboratory), as well as the California Institute of Technology (Caltech), among other institutions, as well as being self employed for the last 6 years as both a tutor in many areas of math and science along with tutoring in, as well as professional work in web-design.
I plan to do my PhD in a computer science related area such as Artificial Intelligence, Cybernetics, BCI (Brain Computer Interface), and Computation & Logic, as well as Cognition and Perception. I hope to begin after this upcoming Summer.
My interests are in the above areas of Computer Science with also an interest in the Theoretical areas such as Computability. I am also interested in areas of Theoretical Physics such as in Gravitation & Relativity as well as Quantum Computing.
My hobbies include traveling the world and seeing the "real" culture. I also play guitar and am especially fond of Playstations Rock Band 3 for which I have a pro-guitar (see rock video's).
