Hey there! I’m Ethan! I’m currently pursuing an M.S. in Computer Science (with an interest in Robotics) at the University of Southern California. I received my B.S. in Computer Engineering at USC in December 2019.

I’m currently interested in AI solutions (especially deep learning) and robotics. This summer, I am working on robotics solutions @ NVIDIA, collaborating with the NVIDIA Seattle Robotics Lab. Last summer, I was working on deep learning inference optimization and runtimes @ NVIDIA.

At school, I am a part of these student organizations:

  • Makers: I’m a project manager and a lead engineer for various hardware projects
  • USC Table Tennis: I play on the Varsity team, coach junior and experienced players, and manage the club as Vice President
  • Code the Change: I was a software developer

I’ve also had the opportunity to work with people from USC’s Robotics Embedded Systems Laboratory (RESL) and Interactive and Collaborative Autonomous Robotics (ICAROS).

Outside of computer science and engineering, I have also dabbled in computer animation, fascinated by the intersection between technology and art. I had the chance to learn about visual effects, crowd generation, motion capture, modeling, and basic rigging and apply it to some of my projects!

In my spare time, I enjoy watching and learning beatboxing. If you are ever interested in getting started on learning beatboxing but have no idea how, check out this link!

I’ve also been to a fair amount of hackathons. I have explored the intersections between web development, augmented reality, motion-detecting hardware, and 3D computer graphics – things get pretty wild when you mix and match these different domains.

Besides America, I have also lived in Taiwan and China (specifically Shanghai) for a while.
