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!

Leoson provides me with the perfect combination of real-world technical experience, a passion for data science for social good, and that motivator we all need to keep working away on a difficult part of a project. I looked at various mentors with niche technical backgrounds but Leoson stood out for his bigger-picture passion and it shows in each of our calls. He always helps me look at projects from different angles from the high-level "how would this help?" to the rigour of statistical methods, with lots of handy material shared along the way. I highly recommend.

Leoson has been incredibly helpful in working through a data project that I've been working on. I am new to data analysis, and he was a very patient and meticulous mentor - would recommend his mentorship for anyone learning data analysis and data science for the first time!

I highly recommend Leo as a mentor on Mentorcruise. He was a great help to me in targeting and landing interviews for my ideal job. He has a wealth of knowledge and experience, and his guidance and advice were invaluable throughout the job search process. His ability to understand my needs and match them with the right job opportunities was outstanding. He is very professional, responsive, and always willing to go the extra mile. I highly recommend him to anyone looking for a mentor who can help them achieve their career goals.
