I'm Mustafa Bal, undergraduate student at Harvard University graduating in May 2019 with a joint bachelor's degree in Computer Science and Linguistics. I am currently a Teaching Fellow for CS 152 with Professor Stephen Chong, and taught for CS 50 with Professor David Malan in Fall 2017.
In the past, I've interned in tech (Microsoft, IBM Research T.J. Watson, Sierra Nevada Corporation, Scientific and Technological Institute of Turkey) and research (Harvard University, Thomas Jefferson High School for Science and Technology CS Research Lab, George Mason University Volgenau School of Engineering Robotics Lab). Other than classes, I'm involved in the Harvard Undergraduate Blockchain Group, Harvard Computer Society, TEDxHarvard College, Harvard Crimson, and the Harvard Turkish Student Association.
I grew up in Ankara, Turkey and McLean, VA, where I graduated from Thomas Jefferson High School for Science and Technology in June 2015. Outside of academics, my hobbies include volunteering, contributing to Wikipedia articles, swimming and playing soccer. I'm also interested in learning & discussing about international politics and philosophy.
