Me in Rincon Hill, June 2017

Hi! I’m Ryan. I am a former postdoctoral researcher at the Santa Cruz Institute for Particle Physics (SCIPP), who worked with the ATLAS experiment at CERN.

I have experience in data science, pattern recognition, statistical modeling, statistical inference, petabyte data reduction, and machine learning.

Previously as a graduate student at Penn, also with ATLAS, I helped commission the Transition Radiation Tracker (TRT), a sub-detector of the ATLAS tracker, during the start-up of the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) in 2009-2012. On July 4 of 2012, the ATLAS and CMS experiments both announced discovering a new particle consistent with the long-sought-after Higgs boson, a key to explaining electroweak symmetry breaking in the Standard Model of particle physics.

I’ve spent 10 years romping through datasets from ATLAS, learning how to explore and model large, multidimentional datasets. I have a knack for developing data analysis frameworks and an eye for technical detail and good scholarship. I am passionate about using scientific techniques to solve important problems and about how technologies extend our reach.
