Ryan is an NSF-funded postdoctoral researcher in the Bell Lab. His postdoctoral research focuses on using next generation sequencing data to study the evolution of visual systems in frogs during major life history transitions. Ryan's Ph.D. research focused on the evolution of visual systems in squamate reptiles (lizards + snakes), and especially on evolutionary transitions between rod and cone photoreceptors in the retina.
