Adventures in computer science.

Me

Hello! I'm Andrew Wang. I'm an MS student studying Computer Science at Stanford. I'm currently a Research Assistant in the lab of Professor Jure Leskovec, working on graph neural networks for unsupervised graph pattern mining. Previously I was a Tanner Dean's Scholar at Cornell majoring in Computer Science, Philosophy and Math, advised by Professor Cristian Danescu-Niculescu-Mizil. I'm excited about machine learning for combinatorial problems, integrating continuous models with discrete algorithms and data structures, with application to natural language, social networks, biological systems and other combinatorially rich domains.
