My name is Ryan Jean and I study at the Georgia Institute of Technology in Atlanta, Georgia, in the fields of astrophysics, quantum physics, cosmology, and mathematics. My main focus is spacetime and gravitational effects on the universe as a whole and on entities such as black holes, dark matter, and dark energy. The ideas of time travel and multiverses have always fascinated me and influenced me to devote my life to science and math. My ultimate goal is to obtain my Ph.D. and do research in cosmology while teaching mathematics to our future generations. Nothing is more rewarding than to impart knowledge on those who are motivated to seek it. Here, I wish to share my knowledge and abstracts of projects I have worked on and am currently partaking, presenting the Jean Omniverse.
I am currently working on various projects in mathematics with my dear friend and colleague, Salvador Barone, who is a mathematics professor at Georgia Tech. I'm also working on several theories in cosmology and involved with the Center for Relativistic Astrophysics at Georgia Tech, headed by Deirdre Shoemaker.

Loren Williams and Ryan Jean
Loren Williams, an astrobiologist at Georgia Tech and my chemistry professor my first semester as a freshmen, 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.
Amalia Culiuc, another friend and colleague of mine in mathematics, has been a great asset to my work as well, especially in the area of proofs. I thank her dearly.
