Brian Krupp

I am an Associate Professor of Computer Science at Baldwin Wallace University. I received my Doctor of Engineering (D.Eng.) from Cleveland State University in 2015 under the supervision of Dr. Nigamanth Sridhar and Dr. Wenbing Zhao. You can find my Curriculum Vitae here


My research interests are on how mobile and internet of things (IoT) can benefit the community, including, how we can better understand what mobile applications do with our data. I lead the MOPS research group which focuses on this research.

With the support of the National Science Foundation, we are currently investigating how to provide localized air quality data to communities using an IoT-enabled air quality sensor that students in middle and high school can create. As part of this, we are building curriculum for an in-school program and test piloting this program this year at Incarnate Word Academy.

If you are interested in any of the research or projects I am working on, please contact me.

Current Research Projects

Below are the research projects I am woring on currently. More details are included on our research group webpage.

Air Quality Graphic

Interdisciplinary research project funded by NSF that focuses on providing fine-grained air quality sensing in urban environments. Current test deployment in Slavic Village through partnership with PCs for People.

I am a member of the following professional organizations: ACM, ACM SIGCSE, ACM SIGCAS, and ACM SIGMOBILE and IEEE Etta Kappa Nu

Side Projects

I have a few side projects that are open to the community:

Ducky Weather

Ducky is a simple weather app with hour-by-hour weather data from the NWS. Unlike many weather apps that exist, it only uses your location to get an accurate forecast and does not send the data to trackers or advertisers.

IOT TVRemote

An IOT project where you can control a TV with your smartphone. The app is available on the App Store, microcontroller not provided :-)
