Hello World

June 4, 2019

My name is Brian Maresso, I’m currently a lecturer at the University of Wisconsin-Whitewater.  I received my Masters degree in Computer Science from UWW in 2018 preceded by my undergraduate degree in 2017 (Computer Science major, Media Arts & Game Development minor w/ Technology emphasis).  My research is primarily focused on artificial intelligence, specifically related to the synthesis of human-like behavior in video game environments.  My Masters Thesis can be found here.

I first picked up programming when I was in 5th grade, starting with GML before moving to Java.  During my undergraduate, I learned C# which quickly overtook Java as my primary language (though I use both frequently).  For game development, I use Processing and Unity.

Course History:

  • CS 296A- Introduction to C# (Spring 2019)
  • COMM 490- Game Jam Practicum (Spring 2019)
  • CS 220- Intermediate Java (Fall 2019)
  • CS 332- Introduction to Artificial Intelligence (Fall 2019)

Outside of the classroom, I’m heavily involved in the game development community in and around Whitewater.  I’m a Chicago Bears season ticket holder and have been to nearly every game since 2000.  I’m also a huge Chicago Blackhawks fan.  I know too much about progressive rock bands from the 60’s and 70’s- particularly Pink Floyd.  I believe Stanley Kubrick’s 2001: A Space Odyssey is the greatest movie of all time and watch it at any and every opportunity.

The purpose of this site is to provide a home for all of my projects which are not quite fit for formal research but which still deserve to see the light of day.  Some of these will be incredibly niche, but my hope is that someone out there might be mildly interested.
