Ryan is a M.S. candidate in the Natural Resources program with a concentration in Aquatic Ecology and Watershed Science at the University of Vermont. He graduated from the University of Vermont in 2013 with a B.S. in Environmental Science and a focus in water resources. As an undergraduate, Ryan worked as a research assistant for two summers in arctic Alaska and reanalyzed a unique data set of whole-stream metabolism for the Kuparuk River. After college he worked for Stone Environmental Inc. as a water resources scientist on a large and instrumented edge-of-field monitoring project. Ryan will utilize the continuous data being collected by NEWRnet to calculate whole stream metabolism for multiple streams and investigate its relationships with other water quality metrics.
