For being Pinterest's eyes
The Most Creative People in business 2018

Li Fan is the SVP of engineering at Pinterest and one of the leading minds on the burgeoning field of visual search. An artist by training, she was encouraged to pursue engineering at a young age. She worked eight years at Google before leading 1,000 engineers working on search at Baidu (sometimes referred to as the Google of China). She returned to Google again to take over her passion there--visual search--before arriving at Pinterest in 2016.
