Brad Ballard

Field Application Engineer

Brad joined Picarro back in 2015 as a technician working with R&D products in the lab but now managers their applications out in the world. As a Field Application Engineer, he is the technical point of contact for two of our utility partners -- DTE Energy and Baltimore Gas and Electric. Previously Brad was in the US Navy from 2007-2012 and has an educational background in Economics (from Ohio State and SJSU) and Computer Science (from Illinois). If not working from his home in Denver, CO, Brad spends his time on the road making customer visits, conducting field trials for potential new partners, or teaching himself new things. Outside of work, he enjoys traveling and has completed two four-month-long, 20+ country trips around the world in 2012 (solo) and in 2019 (with his wife), visiting 6 continents and 50 countries in total (so far…).
