Hi there! I’m Maggie Wang.

I grew up in Palo Alto, California, affectionately known as the heart of Silicon Valley. I am currently a sophomore at Harvard University pursuing Physics and Computer Science.

Ever since building a toy robot in middle school, I have been hooked on robotics and engineering. I helped lead The Space Cookies (Team 1868), an all-girls robotics team, through the FIRST Robotics Competition, and I have worked on quadcopters in the Stanford Autonomous Systems Laboratory. I am also fascinated by astronomy and all-things space, interning for two summers in the UC Santa Cruz Department of Astrophysics.

I am currently working on projects through the Harvard Undergraduate Robotics Club and the Harvard Students for the Exploration and Development of Space (SEDS). This summer, I was a Software Engineering Intern at Google/Nest in the Embedded Systems Team.

Ultimately, I am passionate about using robotics and physics to learn more about our amazing universe. I am also passionate about applying an engineering mindset to a variety of fields—such as geoengineering, brain-computer interfaces, urban development, and politics. I care deeply about educational empowerment, and I hope to give back to my community by mentoring young people pursuing STEM fields.
