Ethan Kerzner, PhD

Hi there! I'm a data visualization R&D engineer, which means that I design and build software that helps experts analyze, understand, and communicate complex data. I'm especially interested in the collaborative, iterative, and creative processes of building new and useful tools.

I've worked with experts ranging from software engineers to biologists. 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 reflected on some of these experiences in my PhD dissertation, which proposes new guidelines for using workhops in applied visualization projects.

I'm always interested in talking about data visualization or building software for expert users. Please get in touch if you want to chat: Email | LinkedIn | Twitter
