About Me

Hi! I'm Katherine Yang. I am a student at Georgia Institute of Technology pursuing my bachelors in Computer Science and Mathematics.

I'm passionate about staying up-to-date with the latest technologies and trends in the industry. I have created a solution to modify AWS service like Storage Gateway as well as creating a test blockchain using the source code from HyperLedger Fabric

In my spare time, I like to take a bike and go for a ride, read a book, as well as exploring the world with just a backpack.








Georgia Institute of Technology

The Automated External Defibrillator (AED) Locator Mobile Application
Atlanta, GAAug 2023 - Present

  • Worked with a cardiologist at Tanner Health System to develop a full-stack mobile application which allows user to rapidly locate the nearest AED and correctly perform AED/CPR through the training information in the app.
  • Used React Native as frontend and MongoDB to store AED map and monitor user accounts and activities.

Physics IQ Project
Atlanta, GAJun 2022 - Dec 2022

  • Designed and implemented a solution to determine if there is a difference between athletes’ and non-athletes’ ability to predict projectile motion
  • Developed a computer-based projectile prediction simulation using Unity with C#.

Vehicle Plate Recognition System based on Deep Learning Algorithm
Atlanta, GAJun 2022 - Aug 2022

  • Used DBSCAN to isolate the license plate area of each car image from a large car image database containing difference sizes and angles.
  • Used convolutional neural network with 6 layers to train the model and identify characters from the license plate.

Travel Reservation Service
Atlanta, GAAug 2021 - Dec 2021

  • Built a MySQL database using a relational schema to store users’ information and their planned travel activities.
  • Designed queries to quickly and effectively extract, store, and parse data.

Work Experience

Software Engineer InternMay 2023 - Aug 2023

  • Designed and implemented an algorithm to reduce duplicate garbage within the Storage Gateway volume system.
  • Reduced duplicates by 98% and saved about $320,000 per year from reducing number of hosts needed.
  • Added metrics, alarms, and new dashboards to reduce system outage and downtime through AWS CloudWatch.
  • Discovered and resolved the issue of garbage system sending metrics to the wrong region.

Micro Connect
Software Engineering InternJan 2023 - May 2023

  • Researched and presented solutions on potential blockchain technologies to track money flow from investors to small businesses.
  • Built a Hyperledger Fabric test network on multiple hosts using Swarm with CouchDB capability to store the blockchain activities.
  • Used as a template for future blockchain deployment on Kubernetes cluster

OIT of Georgia Tech
Computing Support AssistantMay 2021 - Jan 2023

  • Assist ~50 GT staff members over the phone and in person weekly through remote support software.
  • Prepare and image equipment for the full-time GT employees.

Comparative Neuromechanics Lab of Georgia Tech
Undergraduate Research AssistantJan 2021 - Jan 2023

  • Collected and analyzed data using 3D motion capture software and reconstruct/derive biological segments.
  • Reviewed and commented on journals, as well as assisted in the administration of a national scientific conference (American Society of Biomechanics) in year 2021.
