Ryan Fitch is the data manager for the Memory and Aging Center. Stability, support, and automating the boring stuff is his passion. When he is not attempting creative coding solutions or contemplating the component parts of cross-functional workflows, he can be found climbing mountains and running half marathons.

He completed his BS degree in cell biology and molecular genetics from the University of Maryland, College Park and is wrapping up his MS degree in bioinformatics at Johns Hopkins University.
