An ideal mentor has a strong technical background, typically PhD (in Data Science, Computer Science, Statistics, Social Science, or Public Policy) and 5+ years of  industry experience. We want mentors to have real-world problem solving experience as well as experience in leading teams and working with students and industry partners.

In the past years, we’ve had a mix of successful mentors from Industry and Academia (with practical, real-world experience) with PhDs in Computer Science, Machine Learning, Statistics, Social Science, Economics, and Physics.
