Ryan works on antimalarial drug resistance from a molecular perspective in Prof Colin Sutherland's laboratory. In particular, he works on the molecular mechanisms underpinning artemisinin and partner drug resistance using novel genome editing technologies in collaboration with teams across the United States, United Kingdom, and Europe. At LSHTM, Ryan is supported by the Marshall Scholarship. He is dually enrolled at the University of Pennsylvania Perelman School of Medicine for his clinical medical degree, where he is supported by the Twenty-First Century Scholars Programme.

Prior to beginning his tenure on the Marshall Scholarship, Ryan graduated with honours from the Biochemistry and Molecular Biology programme at Penn State University. There, he studied ubiquitin, chromatin, and gene regulation from structural and biochemical perspectives under Song Tan at the Center for Eukaryotic Gene Regulation.  This work earned him the National Astronaut and Goldwater Scholarships.

Ryan also works at the intersections of health, technology, and policy, providing analysis and consultation on medical and biotechnical issues of pressing global significance. For these works, Ryan was named a top under-30 by Business Insider
