My name is Ryan Jean and I received my undergraduate degree at the Georgia Institute of Technology in Atlanta, Georgia, in physics with a concentration in astrophysics and a minor in mathematics. My interests began in spacetime, black holes, dark matter, and dark energy. However, during the course of my studies, I became more fascinated by the mathematics behind the physics. So I decided to switch my focus to analyzing integral algorithms to determine their exact closed forms and observe their consequences under continuous mappings. I am now pursuing a Masters degree at Georgia Tech in pure mathematics under the counsel of Dr. Shahaf Nitzan. My passion is doing research in discrete mathematics and teaching mathematics to our future generations, incorporating accessibility to assist those with disabilities to be more active in the mathematics community. Nothing is more rewarding than to impart knowledge on those who are motivated to seek it. On this website, I wish to share my knowledge and projects that I embark.

Thank You
Loren Williams and Ryan Jean
Loren Williams, an astrobiologist at Georgia Tech and my chemistry professor my first semester as a freshman, has been a wonderful mentor to me ever since. He has always seen great potential in me and has always encouraged me to strive to be my best. I certainly appreciate him wholeheartedly as he is one of the main reasons for my dedication to my work. I thank him for taking the time to mentor me and being there for me throughout the years.
