Ryan is a fourth year Ph.D. student in Computer Science at the Universty of Oregon. Ryan graduated magna cum laude from the University of the Pacific with a double major in Computer Science and Physics. Ryan also was awarded the Outstanding Graduate Award for the Department of Computer Science at UOP. He is currently working on research with Hank Childs, as a member of the CDUX research group. Ryan's research interests include High-Performance Computing (HPC), computational science, and visualization. He previously worked as part of the SciDAC SDAV Institute and has begun as a Lawrence Graduate Scholar at Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory, starting Fall 2015.

Ryan has spent five summers working at Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory on projects ranging from studying dynamic mobile web applications, implementing features in a multi physics code, and studying Monte Carlo transport in a many-core setting. He is experienced in programming in C++, C, cuda, OpenMP_C, MPI_C, python, perl, javascript, html and css.
