Briana was hired in July 2005 as a research scientist for the Center. She works on the Chart of the Future project which involves things such as the Local Notice to Mariners, ship sensors, the Coast Pilot, other marine related topics. Her focus is on web technologies and mobile environments.
She received a B.S. in Computer Science from UMASS, Lowell and received a Master's degree in Computer Science from UNH under the supervision of Dr. Colin Ware. Her master's thesis involved linking audio and visual information in a virtual underwater kiosk display that resulted in an interactive museum exhibit at the Seacoast Science Center.
She loves her two super awesome kids, her husband, sailing on their sailboat, yoga, outdoor activities of all kind, and is an avid telemark skier and snowboarder.
