I am currently a Research Scientist at Google DeepMind on the Magenta Team. I finished my PhD in Computer Science working under Bryan Pardo in the Interactive Audio Lab at Northwestern University. During my PhD, I spent two years as a Student Researcher with Magenta and prior to that, I spent a year and half as Student Researcher 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 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.
