Ryan graduated with a (Hons) Bachelor of Science in Zoology from the University of Guelph and a Master of Environmental Studies from York University. He is currently studying as a PhD student in Environmental Sciences at UPEI with research interests in wildlife ecology and conservation as well as the impacts, adaptation, and mitigation of climate change. Ryan’s research experience includes a behavioural study of captive orangutans (BSc thesis), an investigative study of the threats to wild orangutan populations (MES thesis), and a correlational study of climate change impacts on the endangered breeding population of Piping Plovers on PEI. His current research objectives include (a) predicting changes to Piping Plover breeding habitat on PEI via future sea level rise and (b) the use of regional climate models to generate high-resolution (1 km x 1 km) climate data and projections for PEI.
