Christopher Ryan is researching applied game theory, algorithmic game theory, health care operations, bilevel optimization, and discrete optimization. His most recent co-authored paper, “Parametric Integer Programming Algorithm for Bilevel Mixed Integer Programs” appears in the Journal of Optimization Theory and Applications. Outside of his own studies and research, Ryan has enjoyed his volunteer work as the organizer and curriculum developer of the English Corner conversational English group at the University of British Columbia campus.
Ryan has coauthored several publications, including “Computing Pure Strategy Nash Equilibria in Symmetric Games” in Proceedings of EC ’10: ACM Symposium of Electronic Commerce (2010) and “Rational Generating Functions and Integer Programming Games” (submitted, 2008).
Ryan earned dual degrees from the University of British Columbia. In 2005 he received a BA (with honors) in mathematics and in 2010 a PhD from the Sauder School of Business. While pursuing his studies, he had the opportunity to teach both statistics and operations management at the undergraduate level.
Ryan joined the University of Chicago faculty in 2010.
