Tell us about yourself
I started my career in academia as a researcher and later joined a high-profile Harvard spin-out startup, where I played a key role in advancing an innovative cutting-edge NAND Flash technology from prototyping to a stage prior to mass production. After the technology was acquired by a Fortune 500 company, I continued to serve as an R&D technical domain expert at several top-tier semiconductor and computer hardware manufacturing companies. Then, I transitioned to working on enterprise-class products covering front-end, back-end, and firmware in medical devices, cloud computing, and robotics industries.
I am always very enthusiastic about blockchain technology and the growth of the virtual economy. AnChain was founded at the right time when the virtual economy was emerging into the conventional economy. As business activities in the virtual economy grew rapidly, the involvement and integration between the virtual market and conventional market have created essential needs in technology, finance, regulation, and compliance.
With a focus on cyber-forensics, AnChain is building platforms and services to fulfill such essential needs. With in-depth engagements with individuals, corporations, existing banking and financial institutions, and authority agencies, AnChain is truly building transparency, security, and mutual trust among participants of the virtual market. More importantly, the team is full of passion; I am excited and ready to build the platforms, tools, and services to achieve AnChain’s mission in web3.
What excites you the most about your new role?
Over the past 15 years, I have worked in a range of critical engineering segments across a variety of industries in large corporations. Now I have come to a point when I wish to utilize my skills and experience to build products from an early stage or even from scratch. The role at AnChain provides me an opportunity to design, develop, build, tune, and support AnChain’s key platforms and products in blockchain cyber forensics. As I am joining a startup in the emerging market with a full set of emerging technologies, I will have the opportunity for self-growth – to learn, adapt, and improve – and full product development ownership.
What’s your favorite part about working at AnChain.AI?
My favorite part is the work environment at AnChain – the company culture, the people, the technology, and the future. The work environment at AnChain is very dynamic, versatile, and communicative, and everyone has the opportunity to take ownership of a wide range of projects. The company builds a culture that focuses on innovation, collaboration, result-driven, and goal-oriented, where team members take pride in having ownership of their work.
What excites you the most when thinking about the future of AnChain.AI and web3 as a whole?
There are tremendous essential needs rapidly evolving from the emerging virtual economy to the conventional economy, typically during the fast integration among the virtual economic market, the existing digital economic market, and the traditional conventional economic market. Business activities associated with web1, web2, and web3 are the derivatives of such integration.
The core business of AnChain is driven by such huge essential needs, as AnChain’s products and services are facilitating various participants to accomplish their goals, roles, and responsibilities associated with the activities in the virtual economic market, in which the participants may include but not limited to individuals, investors, corporations, existing banking and financial institutions, and government authority agencies. I am excited to see the significant impacts made by AnChain on the web3 market, and I am excited to be one of the participants to drive the impact.
What do you enjoy doing outside of work?
Outside of work, I enjoy learning innovative technologies, reading, and researching a variety of topics. In addition, I enjoy community volunteering work, group sports, and routine exercises.
Welcome onboard, Steve!
