Meet Your Instructor
David Kovacs is a doctoral student in computer science at the University of Cambridge with research specialization in machine learning. He holds a masters degree in scientific computing from the same institution. He is a multi-year recipient of the University of Cambridge Skerne Scholarship and won the 2019 Alan Battersby Prize.
He has previously conducted research in computational chemistry at the Robb Research Group at the California Institute of Technology and the Alpha Lee Group at the University of Cambridge. He is published in peer-reviewed journals in the fields of machine learning and mechanochemistry. He additionally won the Gold Medal at the 2015 International Chemistry Olympiad.
"David has been helping me with coding for two years. He is not only a computer genius but an excellent teacher. His unique approach to programming helped me find the logic even behind complex algorithms and now I can write code I never dreamed of!"
–Sara A. (18) Cambridge, UK
"David has been teaching me programming and computational thinking for one year. We started from the very basics, but by now I am able to write my own code and apply programming tools to problems in economics. I can only recommend him!”
–Adam R. (17) Cambridge, UK
"David is very kind, funny and always approachable. I can guarantee that you will have a great time with him!”
–Anna L. (16) Cambridge, UK
