Ryan Graham

University Research Chair in Biomechanics and Data Science for Human Health and Performance


Dr. Graham is an Associate Professor in the School of Human Kinetics, Faculty of Healthy Sciences, at the University of Ottawa, and is cross-appointed to the Ottawa-Carleton Institute for Biomedical Engineering (OCIBME). He also holds Adjunct Assistant Professor positions at both Queen's University and the University of Waterloo. He completed his PhD at Queen's in 2012 under the supervision of Dr. Joan Stevenson, where his thesis was entitled: "Assessing dynamic spine stability using maximum finite-time Lyapunov exponents". He has published over 60 peer-reviewed manuscripts and 90 refereed conference proceedings, secured over $4 million CAD in research funding, and has received a number of recognitions for his research. These include being awarded the David Winter Promising Young Investigator Award from the Canadian Society for Biomechanics and an Ontario Early Researcher Award in 2018, and the 2019 University of Ottawa Faculty of Health Sciences Dean's Award for Excellence in Research.

Dr. Graham is always looking for talented new post-doctoral fellows and graduate students, and is able to supervise through both human kinetics and OCIBME. If you are interested in learning more, please contact us!
