Paradoxical

Adventures in computer science.

Me

Hello! I'm Andrew Wang. I'm a Master's student studying Computer Science at Stanford. I'm currently working in the SNAP group on unsupervised network motif mining, and the lab of Professor Emma Brunskill on deep reinforcement learning for performance-supported human learning. 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 data and task structures in which classical AI algorithms and neural network approaches could benefit by working together in a tightly integrated way.

Summer 2017: I studied social networks at the EPFL Data Science Lab with Professor Robert West.
