Hi everyone! My name is Ryan, and I’m a fourth year student specializing in Cellular, Anatomical, and Physiological Sciences. I’m currently a co-op student with UBC Psychiatry and BC Children’s Hospital Research Institute where I study the outcomes of concussion and traumatic brain injury using magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). Prior to this, I was an Undergraduate Researcher in the Djavad Mowafaghian Centre for Brain Health studying neuronal development and dendritogenesis (the formation of dendrites) using in vivo imaging techniques such as two-photon microscopy.
In my free time, I enjoy cooking, learning new languages, and playing musical instruments. You can also find me hiking in the trails around the Greater Vancouver area. I look forward to connecting with you and answering any questions you may have about research!
How did I first get into research?
I first got into research through the Gene Researcher for a Week (GRFAW) program back in high school. This program sparked my interest in research and taught me wet lab techniques, data analysis, and other useful skills which ultimately led me to land a research position at the end of first year.
