Brian received his Ph.D. in Mechanical Engineering in June 2022 from UC Santa Barbara, co-advised by Dr. Emilie Dressaire and Dr. Alban Sauret. He received his B.S. from UC Davis in 2012 and his M.S. from WSU-Vancouver under the direction of Dr. Jong-Hoon Kim. During his graduate studies, he worked on flexible biosensors, high-throughput filtration, and clog mitigation techniques. Concurrently, he also assisted in teaching many classes, and received the Outstanding TA Award in 2018 and 2022. Prior to graduate school, he has worked in both the semiconductor and commercial HVAC industries. As the Innovation Workshop and Microfluidics Lab Manager, Brian strives to spread the joy of fabrication and experimental design to students and researchers across campus.
