My name is Ryan

I'm a scientist with a penchant for philosophy and especially consciousness research. Formally, I'm a computational chemist, having earned my Ph.D. at the University of Arkansas in 2020. Since graduating, I've been working in R&D at the innovations company, T.R.R. Designs, L.L.C.

This website is a bit of a mixture of "professional" and "personal" aspirations: it's a good place to post my CV, but also show some of the stuff I do in my spare time, share my thoughts about some books, some opinions you didn't ask for, etc.

Concision has its place, but on this site I try to be beneficially verbose. My intent is to give you the best chance of finding something useful via the site-wide search bar.
