Ethan's head

Ethan Manilow


I am a final-year PhD Candidate studying Computer Science working under Bryan Pardo in the Interactive Audio Lab at Northwestern University. In April 2022, I finished two years as a Student Researcher at Google Brain on the Magenta Team. Prior to that, I was a Research Intern at MERL on the Speech and Audio Team. My research centers on making machine learning systems that listen to and understand musical audio in an effort to make tools that can better assist artists.

I currently live in Chicago, where I spend my free time fingerpicking my acoustic guitar and smiling at dogs I pass on the sidewalk. You can email me at ethan manilow [at] gmail [dot] com.
