Ryan Swan is a predoctoral fellow in Bioinformatics and Computational Biology. His work to date has focused on collaborating with the i-ROP research consortium to investigate the diagnosis of and genetic contributions to Retinopathy of Prematurity, a disease causing blindness in premature infants. He has performed work in clinical decision support, imaging, and machine learning. His dissertation focus is investigating ways of using networks to represent genetic risk in rare disease.
