What I do

Ryan was a Government Innovation Research Analyst in Nesta’s Innovation Lab.

Prior to joining the Innovation Lab Ryan worked for startups in South East Asia, and was an Innovation and Economic Growth Intern in Nesta’s Policy and Research Team. As an Intern at Nesta Ryan’s work focused on nanosatellites, the crowdfunding sector, the economic impact of high growth startups, and the state of medical technology (MedTech) in the UK.

Ryan has also worked as a Research Analyst for Accenture’s in-house think tank, The Institute for High Performance, where he researched the economic impact of the Internet of Things.
