Brian Cody grew up the eldest of five siblings in a small city in the southeast of Ireland called Kilkenny. He studied at the University College Dublin where he obtained a Bachelors degree in Neuroscience. Before joining the Aurora Scientific team, he did a brief stint working with some Primary Pharmaceutical Sales Representatives for Boehringer Ingelheim where he confirmed to himself that the sale of scientific research equipment was an area which he had a strong interest in.
Brian is the European Sales Manager for Aurora Scientific which is based in Dublin, Ireland. He has been with Aurora Scientific for just over two years and has enjoyed every second of it. Unfortunately for Brian, he began this role approximately two weeks before the COVID-19 pandemic swept across the world, putting a halt to international travelling and hence any opportunities to meet with our European client base in person. Luckily, since things seem to be improving in many parts of the EU with regards to the virus, he is beginning to get out and meet more researchers and support their science, which is fantastic.
Travelling out to researchers’ labs to meet them in person and learning more about their research, as well as how they use our equipment in practice, is something that he really enjoys. After two years interacting with people via email and Zoom calls, it is great to see that they are not just 2D shapes behind a screen!
Brian has many hobbies and likes to stay active, and so he will not shy away from any form of physical activity. He has a strong interest in an Irish amateur sport called hurling, which although a strictly amateur association, is treated like a professional sport in Ireland! His other hobbies include reading, cooking, going to the gym, and watching TV.
