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 lives in New York, where he enjoys the opera, rock climbing, and attending geeky data science events. You can find out more at the Data Incubator’s webiste or @thedatainc.
