Things I’ve made trying to leave my dent in the universe.

I’ve worked on tons of projects from little to complex ones over the years but these are the ones that I’m most proud of. I work on projects merely based on 3 criteria: they have to be fun, they have to be challenging, and they have to be impactful, to me, to people I love or to the society.

  • Human Cell Atlas

    2017-2021
    Software Engineer/Co-Tech Lead

    The HCA is an international group of researchers using a combination of these new technologies to create cellular reference maps with the position, function and characteristics of every cell type in the human body. I worked on a subcomponent of its Data Coordination Platform which is the only work I directly contributed to that is published on Science (12 May 2020) so far.

  • Taitopia Render Platform

    2021-2024
    Founding Employee/Cloud Architect/Full-stack Engineer/Engineering Manager

    Taitopia Render Platform is a really ambitious project that I started in 2021. It aims to provide a Cloud Native (SaaS) platform for people to create ray-tracing based photo-realistic artifacts such as animations or images from 3D scenes in a web browser, without having to purchase expensive hardware or software. We explored the edge of a lot of new technologies (back then) such as WebGPU, WebRTC, WebAssembly, ControlNet, and Kubernetes. We also have a lot of fun with the design and user experience. I loved every bit of it and even working on a series of blog posts to document the journey.

  • China Carbon Neutrality Tracker

    2023
    Technical Consultant/Full-stack Data & Engineering Owner

    I worked on this Non-Profit (I got paid) project to deepen my understanding of the global endeavors aimed at achieving carbon neutrality through equitable transition strategies. This venture was a profound learning experience, and I take pride in having orchestrated its entire framework—from frontend and backend development to establishing standard operating procedures for data updates. Collaborating with designers, we achieved a user interface that is both aesthetically pleasing and user-friendly. What invigorated my passion most was discovering the multitude of dedicated experts addressing this pivotal challenge for humanity. Their commitment is truly inspiring, and being part of this initiative has been an honor.
