Brian Thorne is an undergraduate mechatronics engineering student at the University of Canterbury. He is working at the HIT Lab NZ on an open source robust eye tracking platform for use as an input into different applications such as in the immersion room and on standard computers. Brian worked at Tait Electronics for a summer internship comparing the scientific programming tools matlab and python, gaining valuable experience with his now favorite programming language.

Brian's computer interests are in computer vision, cloud computing and one day AI. Brian is captain in the Canterbury University Tramping Club and is the deputy captain of the kayaking club. He has also been known to run and occasionally even go rock climbing. Most weekends he can be found as far away from Christchurch as he can get!
