Danny, who is from Indonesia and currently a final year student at Chemical Engineering School, joined the team in April and in charge of user interface design of JORaN. Whereas, Asamoah from Ghana and Lai from Malaysia are both students of Computer Science School and in charge of the backend infrastructure.
