About this Session

If you're looking for a mentor, and you're just not sure about how this all works – this one is for you. In a casual, informal introductory call, a mentor will introduce themselves, show you around the platform, explain how our mentorships work, and explain how they would set up a mentorship with you.

This session is perfect if you're looking for a long-term mentor, but you're just not sure how this can work – or if you already set eyes on a specific mentor, and want to get to know them beforehand.

Hello there! I am a Technical Lead and Lead Data Scientist at the University of Chicago Urban Labs. I am passionate about leveraging technology to solve human problems and to advance social good, and have many years of experience in hiring for analytic and data science teams, and extensive programming and statistical knowledge in my own capacity as a data scientist.

My own path has neither been straight or narrow, I come from an interdisciplinary background - receiving my undergraduate training in Psychology and New Media, and in Linguistics and Computer Science in graduate school. I have been at different times of my life an interaction designer, mental health professional, and data engineer.

I enjoy supporting individuals who are looking to grow in tech and data science, regardless of their background! In my sessions, I will bring the resources and best practices I've personally used during my career and tailor them to your specific needs.

This session is for me to learn more about what those needs are, and for you to get to know me better as well - and assess whether I may be a suitable mentor on your exciting professional journey. Looking forward to meeting you!

I feel incredibly fortunate to have had the opportunity to learn from and work with Leo as my mentor. He has a friendly and approachable demeanor which helped break the ice right from the introductory session. One of his admirable qualities is his patience. He takes the time to listen, understand, and tailor his guidance to the specific needs and goals of his mentees. The call sessions with Leo have been very informative and have motivated me to learn/explore more in the area of my interest. Leo is an outstanding mentor and has been a great source of inspiration and encouragement. I highly recommend him to anyone seeking guidance, inspiration, and support in their endeavors.

Leoson has been absolutely fantastic in helping me become more proficient in data analysis. As a product manager, it's crucial for me to have a strong understanding of the data around the product areas I work on, including how users interact with the product and how it correlates with our business KPIs. Leo's approach has been amazing - he always makes sure I understand the foundations of how data is gathered before diving into the analyses. Thanks to Leo, I feel much more confident in my ability to work with data and drive meaningful insights for our team.
