Speaker "Michael Li" Details
Michael Li founded the Data Incubator (http://www.thedataincubator.com), a New York-based training program that turns talented PhDs from academia into workplace-ready data scientists and quants. The program is free to fellows, and routinely accepts just 1% of applicants. Employers engage with the Incubator as hiring partners.
Previously, he worked as a data scientist (Foursquare), Wall Street quant (D.E. Shaw, J.P. Morgan), and a rocket scientist (NASA). He completed his PhD at Princeton as a Hertz fellow and read Part III Maths at Cambridge as a Marshall Scholar. At Foursquare, Michael discovered that his favorite part of the job was teaching and mentoring smart people about data science. He decided to build a startup to focus on what he really loves.
Michael lives in New York, where he enjoys the Opera, rock climbing, and attending geeky data science events. You can find out more at http://www.thedataincubator.com or @thedatainc.
