  • Background:

    Ryan graduated with honors from the Rhode Island School of Design with a degree in Industrial Design, attended the European Honors Program, and took several classes within Brown University's Department of Medicine. His thesis work at RISD involved fabrication of a real-time simulation engine, the design of a telemedical device for NASA, and extensive research into the theory of simulation. Since 1998, Ryans research in simulation has contributed to the design of many of the medical simulation systems being developed including those at Virtual Presence, Muse Technologies, Endovia Medical, Mentice, METI, and Mitsubishi Electric Research Labs.
         In 1997 Mr. Bardsley founded Tixel HCI, a design firm specializing in human/computer interface development and located in Boston. Through Tixel HCI, Mr. Bardsley has overseen projects ranging from software development on Lotus K-station for Lotus Development and IBM WebSphere Portal for IBM Corporation, to product design and engineering for MERL on a number of R&D projects including the PDH: Personal Digital Historian: query-driven browser for storytelling with digital photographs, ComBadge: a voice-operated communications device, ICTS: Interventional Cardiology Training System: real-time surgical simulator, an Intelligent Audio / Video Surveillance System, and a Solid-state Accident Video Recorder.
