Ivan Montero

Hi!

I'm Ivan Montero, a wannabe Renaissance man.

Currently, I'm computer science Master's student at the University of Washington, where I do research in Noah's ARK to help computers efficiently learn from language. I've also done natural language processing and computer vision research at Apple, Google, and Facebook.

I enjoy dogs, philosophy, learning new languages, taking things apart, traveling, photography/videography, running, longboarding, swimming, drones, surfing, ...

I am currently applying to PhD programs!
