Mark Brickley is a Professor of Computer Information Systems / Web Development. His interests include Geographic Information Systems, web programming languages and data analytics.
His GIS students have participated in the University-sponsored Community Partnership Center, building interactive online maps for the City of Pawtucket; most recently deploying a “Collector” app that provides DPW workers the ability to use our online map as a data collection tool in the field. Mark has presented his work at the International GIS conference in San Diego as well as several conferences of the Northeast Decision Sciences Institute. In the summer of 2015, Mark presented a 2-hour GIS workshop at the Asia Pacific Decision Sciences Conference in Hong Kong.
In 2011 and 2012, Professor Brickley coached a student team as they competed in the Association of IT Professionals National Collegiate Competition (with Professor Cutting in 2011 & Professor Schroth in 2012). The teams placed 8th in the nation in 2011 and 2nd in 2012. In both cases, the teams worked with local non-profit organizations, creating database driven web solutions. Students presented and defended their work as part of the final stage of the competition at conferences in Orlando and San Antonio.
Mark’s interest in data analytics has resulted in a newly revised introductory course that includes data mining as one of its components. With Professor Farbod Farhadi, Mark will coach a team of students as they compete in the Association for Information Systems’ analytics competition.
Professor Brickley has degrees from the University of Massachusetts (B.S.) and University of Rhode Island (M.A.). He is a member of Beta Gamma Sigma, the Association for Information Systems and Delta Sigma Pi.
