At The Data Incubator we run a free eight-week Data Science Fellowship Program to help our Fellows land industry jobs. We love Fellows with diverse academic backgrounds that go beyond what companies traditionally think of when hiring Data Scientists. Michael was a Fellow in our Winter 2016 cohort who landed a job with one of our hiring partners, Schireson Associates
Tell us about your background. How did it set you up to be a great Data Scientist?
Toward the third year of my PhD I got really interested in machine learning. I started using scikit-learn to predict different aspects of simulations I worked on. These projects became a large part of my thesis and contributed to choosing The Data Incubator as a next step in my career.
