As the Community Engagement Manager, Ryan is developing programmatic initiatives to help Wikipedia community members in their editing work.

Ryan earned a masters in digital media studies at Emerson College, and is completing his PhD dissertation with North Carolina State University on the history of encyclopedic knowledge production. Ryan has experience on Wikipedia as a volunteer (User:Rhododendrites) and in his work as a university instructor. In his free time, Ryan edits Wikipedia and wonders why he’s not working on his dissertation.
