Cian Ryan

Cian trained as a medical scientist in Ireland, specialising in immunology and medical microbiology before joining CHICAS to train as an epidemiologist under the supervision of Dr Jonathan Read and Dr Chris Jewell. He aims to employ network modelling and bayesian inference approaches alongside his knowledge of infectious diseases to investigate how susceptible individuals connect at multiple scales and how this impacts disease transmission across geo-social space. Before beginning his PhD with CHICAS, Cian was working briefly with the UK Health Security Agency on the outbreak response to emergencies such as the COVID-19 pandemic (omicron) and Monkeypox.
