Ke Alexander Wang

  • PhD Student, Stanford University

Hey, I’m Alex Wang!

I’m a third-year PhD candidate in Computer Science at Stanford University, working with Emily B. Fox on machine learning for time series in the context of personalized healthcare. I’m also affiliated with Stanford Data Science as a Stanford Data Science Scholar.

I’m thankful that I’ve had many supportive mentors in my life, including Stefano Ermon, Chris RĂ©, and Tatsunori Hashimoto at Stanford, Andrew Gordon Wilson and Jacob R. Gardner at Cornell, and numerous talented collaborators.

I graduated with a M. Sci. in Computer Science at Cornell University with a minor in applied math and a B.A. in Math and Computer Science also at Cornell Universtiy with a minor in Physics.
