Brian J. Goode

Brian Goode is a research scientist with DAC. His research interests are to better understand modeling complex and uncertain systems. He received his doctorate in mechanical engineering from Virginia Tech in 2011, where he performed urban gunshot localization with acoustic beamforming and played hide-n-seek for the Office of Naval Research (ONR) using a differential game theoretic approach to navigation, guidance, and control of autonomous vehicles.

As a member of DAC, he applies these same control theoretic and signal processing concepts to big data problems such as predicting the virality of an idea or “meme” in terms of user participation on a social network, investigating characteristic behavior of protest populations, and evaluating metaphorical usage of South American bloggers.
