Fox Row Rowing, computers, astronomy


I’m Ryan Fox. I am a software developer, specializing in computer vision and image processing. I studied Astronomy-Physics and Computer Science at the of Wisconsin-Madison. My Erdős number is 5. I had the honor of representing the University of Wisconsin for 4 years as an oarsman, and 4 more years on the US national team.

I’m about astronomy, software, programming languages, and sports, among other things.

Currently I am consulting and working on a tool for rowers and coaches called Virtual Cox. If you are interested, feel free to poke around the site, or send me an email if you have questions.

I have worked professionally in astronomy, enterprise software, and biomedical research. Projects I’ve worked on involved at various times (in no particular order):

  • Image processing/computer vision
  • Web development
  • Distributed and high-availability systems
  • Embedded software
  • Data archiving
  • Automation
  • Algorithmic optimization
  • Data visualization
  • Concurrent programming
