As an Application Engineer, Yanhao is tools-driven and passionate about making and using tools to implement process automation and handle "the small stuff" so that he can focus more on critical and unique problems. His wide knowledge of computer science helps him translate complex problems into ideal experiences across the spectrum of user needs.
Before joining AREA 17, Yanhao led a development team to build an ERP SaaS platform at Glopak, a global packaging company. After growing up in China, Yanhao traveled around the world before studying Computer Science at Kean University and subsequently settling in New York. When not studying, he would attend hackathons (and win them!).
Outside of work, Yanhao enjoys long distance running and swimming. He is also an avid Tetris player and is always in search of new video games to play.
