Ryan attended the University of Massachusetts Amherst for his undergraduate education, and the University of Arizona for his graduate work. He defended his PhD, entitled "Constraining the Evolution of Protoplanetary Disks in Clustered Star-formation Environments," in the summer of 2023. At SSI, Ryan will be conducting novel research using state-of-the-art radio interferometers to probe the early conditions of star/planet formation in a range of Galactic environments. Outside of astronomy, he enjoys outdoor activities like hiking, rock climbing, and birdwatching.
