Rowing, computers, astronomy

I’m Ryan Fox. I am a software developer in Maryland. 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, computational imaging, programming languages, computer security, and sports, among other things.

Currently in my free time I’m 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 on process optimization in astronomy and biomedical research. Typical performance gains are 10-60x, but my record is on the order of 10 million times. It is not uncommon to also see order-of-magnitude reductions in code maintenance costs.


If you want to talk astronomy, rowing, or computers, I want to talk to you. Email me at Email is by far the best method to get in touch with me. I read all the emails I get, and try to respond within 24 hours. If you email me and I don’t get back to you within a couple days, I most likely got distracted by other things, so send me a quick ping. I’ll get back to you as soon as I’m able.
