Yifan is a student at Northeastern University. She built a back-end message queue system for the open source project Shared Health Research Information Network (SHRINE) at Harvard Medical School. The system uses concepts of parallel processing/multi-threading, non-blocking asynchronous, distributed systems, etc. Yifan is also involved in bringing diversity into the tech field. She is currently organizing ScalaBridge – Boston, and the first workshop is planned for summer 2018! Please contact her if you want to be involved.
