Brian joins us from an autonomous mobility technology firm, where he designed hardware and improved product performance. Previously, Brian graduated summa cum laude from RPI with a BS in Mechanical Engineering. He led an Internet of Things (IoT) project that integrated sensors into personnel safety equipment that detects and logs abnormal working conditions, and developed deep learning models that processed real-time thermal images to maintain a safe workspace. In other research, he programmed a robotic arm with computer vision, and he explored material engineering for new production methods of high-heat capacitors. Brian grew up in China’s Shandong province and moved during high school to New York City. In his spare time, he enjoys skiing, badminton, and building 3D models of cars.
