Hello! My name is Bryan Blanc. I was born in New York and raised in Connecticut. I moved to Portland in 2013 after completing my  B.S. in Civil Engineering at the University of Connecticut. I was always interested in working with the built environment, but decided to concentrate my studies on transportation after a summer research project in 2011. I was drawn to Portland (and Portland State University) because of the city’s unique experience with bicycle transportation and PSU’s remarkable synergy with the surrounding transportation agencies.

I currently  work  as a graduate research assistant in the Civil Engineering Department’s Sustainable Transport Lab as I complete my M.S. in Transportation Engineering. My research focuses on assessing the compatibility of bicyclists and infrastructure in Oregon using smartphone applications and GPS data.

Outside of academics, I enjoy reading (especially anything related to A Song of Ice and Fire), playing the guitar, exploring on my bicycle, and sampling the many micro-breweries and beer festivals Portland has to offer.

I can be found on Twitter here, though I’m more of a follower than a tweeter.

I can also be found on LinkedIn here.
