Alvin Wan


Director of Technology


I’m a diglot by definition, with a native English tongue and a recollection of French utterances. Lactose intolerant by birth but an ice-cream lover at heart. Call me wabbly, witling, whatever you will, but I just go by Alvin. Ask anyone that’s met me: I’m known for a contagious smile and a Macbook Pro.

More seriously, I'm a fourth-year undergraduate at UC Berkeley studying Electrical Engineering and Computer Science. My passions include teaching, designing, and speaking; my academic interests lie in deep reinforcement learning and computer vision, specifically perception for autonomous driving.

For TEDxBerkeley, I manage technology and volunteers. Want to connect? Email me at alvin (at) For more, see my professional summary.
