Welcome to to the homepage of
B Ricks, PhD.
Fun fact, b+ricks=bricks. I'm a professor at the University of Nebraska at Omaha. My research team creates safer buildings, helps patients recover, and makes bridges healthier. You can see many of our publications on Google Scholar.
I love to teach. Right now it's Intro to Games and Graphics. Other semesters it is Image Processing and Networks.
I also build code. You can find me on Github @ bricksphd . Recent projects include educational tools for young shelter-in-place students ( mazes and word searches ), and visualizations ( bridge health , computer science core requirements , and COVID-19 spread ).
