After receiving his BSEE from Seattle Pacific University, Ryan started his career as an electrical engineer at Synapse in 2006. The year after, though, Ryan decided to pursue a Master of Science in Renewable Energies Engineering at Loughborough University in the UK.
Between his Masters degree and coming back to Synapse, Ryan worked in the development of control systems for industrial scale three phase inverters used in solar power plants. Ryan’s work on inverters gave him deep experience in control systems, power electronics, MATLAB/Simulink, DSP and FPGA programming.
Ryan started this go-around at Synapse in 2015. Since then Ryan has worked on developing a novel, ultra low noise optical sensor for a fitness wearable and a low jitter, sensorless motor control system for a VR application.
Ryan enjoys every excuse to get outside including bicycling to work and dragging his kids on hikes in the woods.
