David Wang, Computer Science & Calculus Mentor
David Wang is a graduate from Stanford University, where he received a BS in Symbolic Systems and an MS in Computer Science with a focus on artificial intelligence. As an undergraduate, he also collaborated with professors and peers as research assistant in the Computation and Cognition lab; during his post-grad years, he worked in Stanford’s Natural Language processing group. When not immersed in advancing technology, David also found the time to round out his humanity with seminars on sociology, feminist and queer theory.

After Stanford, David honed his software engineering skills by developing new features and platforms for Facebook, Khan Academy, and as a KP Engineering Fellow. On the education side, he’s worked as a TA for the CS department at Stanford, curated CS teaching materials for NCWIT and Google, taught internationally in the Middle East, and served as a case worker in Minneapolis Public Schools.
These days, after attending Free Minds, Free People and becoming more involved in community organizing and movement spaces, he’s wondering about how education can be a tool for liberation. David is currently a resident of Minnesota excited to work and think critically with his students!
