GREENVILLE, Pa.—Thiel College Assistant Professor of Computer Science Brian Bradshaw, D.Sc., was recently selected to attend a week-long mobile forensics training program at Robert Morris University.
Chosen from a pool of nationwide applicants from both academic institutions and federal law enforcement agencies, Bradshaw has been endowed by the National Science Foundation to take part in the program. His involvement will enable him to testify as an “expert witness” for court systems in cyber and mobile forensics. Upon completion, Bradshaw will incorporate mobile forensics into a course at Thiel College for both students and local law enforcement.
The National Science Foundation is an independent organization that accounts for 24 percent of all federally-funded research and development conducted by America’s colleges and universities. The foundation has a budget of $7.5 billion to train and fund professionals in the science and engineering fields.

He received a master’s degree in communications and computer information systems from Clarion University of Pennsylvania. He also has a Bachelor of Science in music from Clarion and a Bachelor of Arts in telecommunications and computer information systems from Westminster College. Bradshaw has held certifications from CISCO, Microsoft, Novell and in information assurance. He has also done graduate work in educational pedagogy, music technology and audio engineering.
