Software Engineer at eBay, ex-Googler, with a background in Data Science from UPenn.
Mingyang Li received two Bachelor's degrees studying nanomaterials. Just when he thought he'd create his own self-healing superhero armor, he found himself in love with data crunching more than with magnetron sputtering1. Following his heart, soon after joining the Scientific Computering (SCMP) program at UPenn, he submatriculated into DATS.
I was a Research Associate at Wharton Research Data Services (WRDS), where I build pipelines to parse SEC filings (Form 10-K, etc.). I conduct social science research at the World Well-Being Project (WWBP), mainly focusing on comparing Chinese and American cultures using microblog data. I joined Google as a software engineer in late 2019, moved on to eBay in 2021 and lived happily ever after.
