Dr. Mohr received his B.Sc. in Mechanical Engineering and Physics, with a minor in Mathematics, from Virginia Commonwealth University in 2006. He received his Ph.D. in Mechanical Engineering from University of California, Santa Barbara in 2014.
He is currently a postdoctoral researcher in the group working on the combustion chemistry project. The project's main goal is to develop novel methodology in the modeling of combustion processes leading to better predictive models. Additionally, Ryan's research interests span nonlinear dynamical systems, functional analysis, and operator theory. He also works on extending the theoretical framework of the Koopman operator to dissipative dynamical systems, the spectral decompositions of such operators, and numerical algorithms dealing with those spectral properties.
