Ryan "Morty" Rickaby

Chemical and Biological Engineering '19, Class of 2014
Hi all! My name is Ryan, but most of my friends call me Morty. I am in my final year of chemical engineering at UBC and hoping to work in fuel cell technology or environmental consulting. I am very passionate about doing many things outside of school! I am very into long distance running as well as many other hip Vancouver sports like bouldering, biking, yoga, ultimate, and drinking craft beer. In my years at UBC I have got involved in various engineering groups outside of Sigma Phi Delta, such as: Godiva Band, Engineers for a Sustainable World, and various Engineering Undergraduate Society roles.
