Ge Wang is an Assistant Professor at Stanford University's Center for Computer Research in Music and Acoustics (CCRMA). He received his B.S. in Computer Science in 2000 from Duke University, and his Ph.D. in Computer Science in 2008 from Princeton University. Ge's research includes programming languages and interactive software systems for computer music, mobile and social music, new performance ensembles (laptop orchestras and mobile phone orchestras) and paradigms (e.g., live coding), interfaces for human-computer interaction, 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. He is the founding director of the Stanford Laptop Orchestra (SLOrk) and Stanford Mobile Phone Orchestra (MoPhO), and was a co-director of the Princeton Laptop Orchestra (PLOrk). Ge composes and performs via various electro-acoustic and computer-mediated means. Ge is the Co-founder (and former Chief Creative) of the mobile music startup Smule (reaching over 100 million users), and the designer of Ocarina and Magic Piano for the iPhone.

Ge Wang is an Assistant Professor at Stanford University's Center for Computer Research in Music and Acoustics (CCRMA). He received his B.S. in Computer Science in 2000 from Duke University, and his Ph.D. in Computer Science in 2008 from Princeton University (advisor Perry Cook). Ge's research includes programming languages and interactive software systems for computer music, mobile and social music, new performance ensembles (laptop orchestras and mobile phone orchestras) and paradigms (e.g., live coding), interfaces for 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. He is the founding director of the Stanford Laptop Orchestra (SLOrk) and Stanford Mobile Phone Orchestra (MoPhO), and was a co-director of the Princeton Laptop Orchestra (PLOrk). 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 Rebecca Fiebrink in a duo exploring new performance paradigms, cool audio software, and great food. Ge is the Co-founder and former Chief Creative of the mobile music startup Smule (reaching over 100 million users), and the designer of Ocarina, Leaf Trombone: World Stage, and Magic Piano for the iPhone.
