About the Instructor

Joana Wang Photo

Data Engineer

Joana is a data aficionado with a passion for education. Her ambition is to help people demystify the world of data and make analytics second nature while having fun.

Having worked both in strategy consulting and industry, she's had projects across retail & wholesale, supply chain and financial services. In her last 8 years of experience, she's spent most of her time doing financial modelling, building bespoke data analytics products and wrangling data - a lot of it! This has required her to not only be able to technically develop solutions but also understand the wider business context and relate to people's needs, which she tries to embed in her teaching style.

She currently works as a Data Engineer in a fintech startup helping people lead better financial lives. When she's not knee deep in queries she is most likely on top of a mountain, on a yoga mat or flying a drone.

In recognition of her exemplary service in the classroom, Joana has been selected as a member of General Assembly's Distinguished Faculty program.
