Brian Mayton

Ph.D. Candidate

Brian Mayton's research topics include sensors, sensor networks, and the ways people interact with sensor data. He is currently developing and deploying a network of low-power sensor nodes at Tidmarsh, and investigating ways that this sensor network can be used to provide visitors (both physical and virtual) with rich sensory experiences driven by real-time and archived data from the site. Mayton is a Ph.D. student in the Responsive Environments group at the MIT Media Lab; Kate Ballantine sits on his doctoral committee.
