Stephanie Wang

I am a PhD student in the RISELab at UC Berkeley, where I am advised by Ion Stoica. My research is in distributed systems, and currently I am working on the problem of designing and building a general-purpose distributed system. I am also a committer for the open-source project, Ray, and a software engineer at Anyscale.

Previously, I received my M.Eng. in computer systems at MIT, working with Frans Kaashoek and Nickolai Zeldovich on FSCQ, a formally verified filesystem. Before that, I received my B.S. in computer science and math at MIT.

I will be joining the Allen School of Computer Science at the University of Washington as an assistant professor, starting in fall 2024!  /  CV  /  GitHub  /  Google Scholar  /  LinkedIn
