Yo! I'm Ethan, a software engineer focused on building tools that help experts understand, analyze, and share complex data. In my current work, I'm building analytics tools used by community healthcenters, which increase access to primary care throughout the US. 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. My dissertation was based on 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.
