Neil D. Ryan

I'm a 2nd year PhD student in the Paul G. Allen School of Computer Science & Engineering working with Amy J. Ko. Presently, my research interests are centered around career decisions made by students in computing, and what factors inform those decisions. I want to change the narrative of what's standard, acceptable practice in computing into something that does a better job of serving humanity!
Before I started my research in computing education, I was a graduate student in Computer Architecture, working in Micheal Taylor's Bespoke Silicon Group and Brandon Lucia's Abstract Research Group before that. I received my Bachelor's and Master's in Electrical and Computer Engineering from Carnegie Mellon University.
