Ryan Slocum

Computer Science at CU Boulder



My name is Ryan, and I’m a fourth-year engineering student at the University of Colorado Boulder. I am majoring in Computer Science and minoring in Leadership Studies, with an additional certificate in Engineering Leadership.

At CU, I am currently working on my Senior Thesis under Dr. Christoffer Heckman in the Autonomous Robotics and Perception Group. I’m also involved with the Presidents Leadership Class, and the Engineering Leadership Program, where I am a fellow. I have also worked as a Teaching Assistant in engineering and computer science.

Recently I spent a year at Company Six working on software for autonomous robots for first responders. I also spent a summer at Outrider working on firmware and test processes for autonomous yard trucks.

I’m excited to be learning more about robotics and engineering, and if there’s a project I can help you with, I’d love to hear from you. Take a look at my resume and my experience to learn more, and feel free to connect with me on LinkedIn. Thanks for visiting!
