Course Report Alumni Spotlight: Metis Chicago Graduate Tiffany Li
By Emily Wilson • May 10, 2018
Looking for a way to transition from consultant to data scientist, Tiffany Li turned to the Metis Data Science Bootcamp in Chicago. Now a Data Scientist at GrubHub, Li works on a small team dedicated to testing and improving products among other tasks. In a recent interview with the bootcamp review website Course Report, she details her role at GrubHub, discusses her transition into data science, and talks about the decision to attend a bootcamp instead of going back to school for a master's degree.
Course Report has created some other great Metis-centric content in the past. Check out an interview with our Sr. Career Advisor here and read another alumni spotlight featuring a grad now working at BuzzFeed here.
