Ryan is an assistant professor of atmospheric sciences at the University of Ilinois at Urbana-Champaign. Prior to joining UIUC in 2012, he worked as a research associate in Penn State's Department of Geosciences and as a NOAA Climate and Global Change postdoctoral fellow in Penn State's Department of Meteorology. Ryan graduated from Purdue University with a PhD in Earth and Atmospheric Sciences.

Ryan's research seeks to develop a deeper understanding about the physical processes influencing variability within Earth's climate system and to quantify climate change uncertainties relevant to adaptation planning and decision-making.

His research interests include:  Climate Dynamics, Earth System Modeling, Ocean-Atmosphere Interactions, Weather and Climate Extremes, Tropical Cyclones, Sea-Level Rise, Uncertainty Quantification, Risk Analysis and Geo-engineering.
