Michael Li is the founder and CEO of the Data Incubator, 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, Michael was a data scientist at Foursquare, a quant at D.E. Shaw and JPMorgan, and a rocket scientist at NASA. At Foursquare, Michael discovered that his favorite part of the job was teaching and mentoring smart people about data science, so he decided to build a startup that lets him focus on what he really loves. He holds a PhD from Princeton, where he was a Hertz fellow, and read Part III Maths at Cambridge, where he was a Marshall scholar. Michael enjoys the opera, rock climbing, and attending geeky data science events.
