Brian Frey

PhD Student

Human Centered Computing

University of Maryland, Baltimore County

I am a third year PhD student in UMBC's Information Systems program and a member of the EASEL Lab. My mentor is Dr. Carolyn Seaman.

Before I moved to Baltimore I was the project manager for a 600,000-page intranet migration for a multi-state electric utility and an affiliated researcher with Georgia Tech's College of Interactive Computing.

I am the inventor of BrailleTouch and a member of the team that has continued its development, who include Mario Romero, Caleb Southern, James Clawson, Kate Rosier, Kulsoom Abdullah and Gregory Abowd.

My portfolio can be found here

When I'm not studying I enjoy capoeira, samba, HvZ and spending time with my family.
