My name is Christopher Ryan, and I studied Mechanical Engineering with Business Administration and Mathematics Minors at the University of Iowa. Outside of classes I am an active member in the University of Iowa SAE team and the Iowa men's Ultimate club team, called IHUC.

Baja SAE team:
I am currently spearheading the installation of live data acquisition in our latest car. This will involve mounting a compact RIO computer system from National Instruments into the vehicle to connect to various sensors. Real-time data gathered will be used to monitor important statistics (like engine temperature, engine RPM, axle RPM, and shock absorber deflection) while navigating a track and driving over obstacles. Monitoring and interpreting these statistics will be important to current and future design modifications as the team continually improves our vehicle designs.
