Serena L. Wang


I am a third-year PhD student in Computer Science at University of California, Berkeley, advised by Michael I. Jordan. I am supported by the NSF Graduate Research Fellowship. I am also a software engineer at Google Research, where I worked with Maya Gupta as a member of the Glassbox Machine Learning Research team. I received a B.A. in Computer Science from Harvard University in 2016, where I completed an undergraduate thesis in operating systems and machine learning with Margo Seltzer.

My research interests include developing machine learning algorithms that are fair and robust in practically meaningful ways, employing tools from constrained optimization and statistical learning theory.

This year I am co-president of UC Berkeley’s Women in Computer Science and Engineering (WICSE).
