Ge Wang is an Assistant Professor at Stanford University in the Center for Computer Research in Music and Acoustics (CCRMA). He received his B.S. in Computer Science in 2000 from Duke University, and Ph.D. in Computer Science (advisor Perry Cook) in 2008 from Princeton University. His researches programming languages and interactive software systems (of all sizes) for computer music, mobile and social music, new performance ensembles (laptop orchestra and mobile phone orchestra) and paradigms (e.g., live coding), visualization, human-computer interaction, sound synthesis and analysis, musical visualization, and methodologies for education at the intersection of computer science and music.
Ge is the author and chief architect of the
ChucK audio programming
language, and co-directed the Princeton Laptop Orchestra
(PLOrk). He is the founding director of the Stanford Laptop Orchestra (SLOrk),
and co-founder and director of the Stanford Mobile Phone Orchestra

environment, and the creator of audio visualizations such as sndpeek. Ge
composes and performs via various electro-acoustic and computer-mediated
means, including with PLOrk/SLOrk, with Perry as a live coding duo, and with
Fiebrink in a duo exploring new performance paradigms, cool audio
software, and great food.
