Ryan is a Mechanical Engineering Master’s student at the University of Virginia. He is a graduate researcher at the Center for Applied Biomechanics (CAB), where his current research project is focused on the simulation of loading conditions in the lower leg similar to that of an under body blast (UBB) experience of a mounted warfighter. Ryan is working on the validation and advancement of the CAVEMAN (Computational Anthropomorphic Virtual Experiment Man) finite element human body model developed by Corvid Technologies using experimentally obtained data at UVA.
