Student Researcher @ University of Washington

ethans03 [at] cs.washington.edu

Hi! I am a undergraduate student at the University of Washington majoring in Computer Science, minoring in Math and History. I currently work as a research assistant at RAIVN Lab mentored by Aditya Kusupati under Prof. Ali Farhadi. I am broadly interested in how models understand information through representation, model architecture, and training. I am also interested in the intersection of artificial intelligence and the social sciences.

I worked with two classmates to create an experimental Visual Question Answering dataset with future shifted images generated using Stable Diffusion 2.0.


I helped found and develop Mutorials, an ongoing online science trainer to make SAT and AP test preparation fun and accessible.
