Lee Harper

I did my PhD at Oxford in statistical theories of chemical reactions. After a brief stint as a high school teacher, I became a scientific analyst (what would now be called a data scientist), doing research to build machine learning models for the medical diagnostics industry. After moving to the US, I held various data and statistics roles at a couple of digital marketing startups. After coming to Galvanize to advance my python and SQL skills, I now work as a data scientist come manager for Cerebri AI Inc, where I get to work with a great team taking an innovative approach to measuring customer success.
