Get to know me a bit better!


A photo of me on my 20th birthday

Hi! I’m Jeffrey Yao, a first-year Computer Science student at UNSW Sydney and incoming Software Engineer intern at Bukalapak’s new Sydney engineering office this summer. In a previous life, I spent two years studying Mechanical / Biomedical Engineering before switching to the dark side. I’m passionate about optimisation, health-tech and augmented reality which I think may change the way we experience the world.

I’m driven by an eye for beautiful design, the desire to get to the bottom of a problem, and the urge to build something new. Good design is reductive, aesthetic and thorough - in short, I sweat the small details.

If I’m not studying or building personal projects, I’m either working out, cooking a new recipe, finding somewhere new to explore in Sydney, or listening to music.
