Supervising Faculty: Yarom Polsky
Ryan has interests in environmental monitoring, wireless sensor networks, cyber-physical systems, embedded systems design, unmanned arial drones, and sustainable agriculture.
Prior to starting at UTK in the Bredesen Center, Ryan was an intern at Oak Ridge National Laboratory and United Technology Research Center. At ORNL, he worked on developing measurement systems for monitoring carbon cycle processes in aqueous subterranean environments and a Hall Effect sensor array to map magnetic fields emanating from hard disk drives. While at UTRC during the summer of 2015, he interned with the Applied Physics group developing a hybrid flexible printed electronic sensor platform.
Ryan is a second year student developing his dissertation topic and scope. The primary research he is investigating includes the use of wireless sensor networks for various measurement applications, such as air and water quality monitoring, precision agriculture, and smart cities. Ryan's desire is to commercialize the technology he develops during his dissertation research and continue to expand the use of wireless sensor networks into other domains.
