Ryan has a Master's degree in Mechatronics from the University of Bath, which he completed after studying a Bachelor's in Renewable Energy Engineering at the University of Exeter. Ryan is interested in applying his knowledge of mechanical and electrical engineering to the electrification of automotive propulsion. During his Master's he lead the powertrain team for the University of Bath's autonomous electric formula student car and subsequently completed his thesis on the thermal management of a solid polymer electrolyte lithium metal battery pack. Within the AAPS CDT Ryan aims to widen his knowledge of other disciplines relating to the sector and develop electrical powertrain technologies, with a focus on battery systems. Outside of University he likes to run, cycle, and work on motorcycle projects!

Ryan has recently published papers on his research journey.
