Brian has been involved with researching and designing damping systems for tall buildings and other dynamically sensitive structures since 1990. After completing his master’s degree at Western University's Boundary Layer Wind Tunnel Laboratory, he went on to RWDI and led the development of the engineering expertise of large-scale damping systems.

He led the design of several large sloshing and tuned mass dampers for buildings around the world, including the Wall Centre, Vancouver and Taipei 101, Taiwan.
