Chris studies infinite dimensional optimization, algorithmic game theory, bilevel and discrete optimization. His most recent co-authored paper, “Rational Generating Functions and Integer Programming Games” has appeared in Operations Research.
Ryan earned dual degrees from the University of British Columbia. In 2005 he received a BA (with honors) in mathematics, and a PhD in 2010 from the Sauder School of Business. While pursuing his studies, Ryan had the opportunity to teach both statistics and operations management at the undergraduate level.
Outside of his own studies and research, Ryan has enjoyed volunteer work as the Organizer and Curriculum Developer of the “English Corner” conversational English group held at the University of British Columbia and University of Chicago campuses.
