Ryan is a fourth-year PhD student working with Professor Brooke Foucault Welles as a part of the Communication Media and Marginalization (CoMM) Lab. At the Network Science Institute, he studies how individuals use online communication networks to amplify their voices, and how that amplification resonates through online media ecologies. To do so, his research makes advances in network science and text-as-data methodology to develop new approaches for measuring the complexities of polarization, misinformation, and the networked public sphere. Ryan holds an MS in mathematics from the University of Vermont, where he worked with the Computational Story Lab at the Vermont Complex Systems Center, and a BA in mathematics from the University of Connecticut.
