Rex Asabor

I study Computer Science and Mathematics at Harvey Mudd and research large language models at Inworld AI.

During my pandemic-inspired leave of absence, I joined OpenSea as one of its first 15 hires, and spearheaded its early Trust and Safety engineering efforts as the startup scaled 20x in headcount and 50x in marketplace volume.

I'm interested in frontier technologies — in particular, applications of the blockchain, the metaverse, and artificial intelligence.
