ryan smithRyan is a PhD student in the Centre for Research Training in the Foundations of Data Science and funded in this program by Science Foundation Ireland. He completed his undergraduate studies at University College Dublin in Theoretical physics in 2019 and joined the Wave Group shortly after starting his postgrad studies under the supervision of Professor Dias.

He has interests in numerical methods for simulation of fluids and in combining modern machine learning and image processing techniques to find new ways to study the dynamics of breaking waves. This work also links in closely with that of the ERC HighWave project.

Ryan also works as a tutor within the UCD Mathematics and Statistics department for a variety of undergraduate modules during the academic year.
