Hi there! My name is Ethan, and I'm a software engineer focused on building tools that help experts understand, analyze, and share complex data.
In my current work, I'm building tools to visualize and analyze large distributed applications. Previously, I've built tools that accelerated neuroscience discoveries, contributed to safer military vehicles, and significantly impacted an early-stage project at Google X.
I hold a PhD in computer science, which focused on best practices for workshops in the early stages of applied visualization projects. It was based on my experiences building visualization software for neuroscientists, defense analysts, physicians, and biologists. It was advised by Miriah Meyer at the Vis Design Lab at the University of Utah.
