My name is Eunjin Lee but most people call me Ellie! I was born in Seoul, South Korea and moved to the UK when I was five. Currently I work in IBM Emerging Technologies as a Developer & Designer, bridging the gap between research and industry. Outside my core role I am an IBM Senior Inventor - I have 9 patent files and 15 publishes, ranging from biometric authentication methods to smart restaurant analytics. I also like to participate and organise international Hackathons on my weekends.
I design and develop user-centered solutions. I work on projects from the initial concept, through to the UX, prototyping and development of the product - working closely with stakeholders and end-users everystep of the way.
I specialise in the design and development of Proof of Technology projects - rapidly iterating through designs to accelerate the initial development cycle. I work with mixed fidelity design tools and various Front-End frameworks to develop the MVP. To tie it all together, I write APIs and server-side scripts using Node.js and Java.
I am an IBM Senior Inventor, holding 9 patent files and 15+ publishes. I am a part of the CICS Invention Development Team and a patent mentor. I organise, participate and judge at Hackathons around the world. Most notably, I have won the RBS Edinburgh Hackathon, the UN Humanitarian Hack and the Amsterdam Fishackathon.
