Eric Reynolds Brubaker

I am an engineer at NASA where I support teams to co-design across group boundaries.

After a decade working in hardware development, teaching design, and co-developing impact-driven organizations in the U.S., India, and Zambia, I completed a Ph.D. in engineering design at Stanford University. There I was part of the Center for Work, Technology & Organization, Center for Design Research, and Center for African Studies with funding from the National Science Foundation Graduate Research Fellowship.

I am trained in engineering design, manufacturing, data science, and theories from sociology, psychology, and the learning sciences. My research involves ethnography, mixed methods, and field experiments in partnership with communities and organizations.

Outside of work, I enjoy riding bikes, making things, and spoken word. My family and I are based in Atlanta, Georgia.
