Bryan has been with Caribou Digital since 2014, leading research on technology platforms, business models, and identification systems. He is now focused on Caribou Data, a new venture that provides unique data insights into the digital behaviors of consumers in emerging markets. He did his PhD in geography at University of California, Davis, with a focus on mobile platforms, firm strategy, and the app economy, exploring how the combination of technological and socioeconomic structures shape value creation and value capture. Bryan has a long-running collaboration in this research with ETLA, the Finnish Organization for Economic Development, and BRIE, the Berkeley Roundtable on the International Economy. Prior to Caribou, he spent 12 years working as an independent consultant, primarily in the energy sector. In that career, he co-founded two hardware businesses, one doing solar lanterns in Zambia (failed) and one doing solar lighting for pastured poultry in the U.S. (still growing). He has a background in both digital and physical product design, and has taught user-centered design workshops to a wide range of audiences. He is currently living in San Jose, California.
