Chief People Officer and Co-Founder
Ma holds a Ph.D. in physics and worked previously as a researcher in nanotechnology, developing optical detection for medical diagnostic processes.
Before joining the founding team of Faculty AI, Ma also founded Data Science Lab, which grew to be one of Europe’s largest communities of data scientists and boasted over 2,000 active members.
The Faculty AI came about when Ma and her co-founders Marc Warner, CEO, and Andrew Brookes, CTO, recognized that something better was needed to help Ph.D. students transition from academia to working with data and artificial intelligence (AI) in the real world. Deciding that they would be able to provide the training and guidance these students needed, this concept formed the basis of their start-up – which would go on to also apply AI to business problems, offering innovative solutions to business clients.
Keen to be at the forefront of bringing disruptive AI to the general public, Ma and her team have now completed over 150 projects. Faculty AI*s expert data, scientists and engineers provide personalized business solutions and data science consulting, as well as an eight-week training course for Ph.D. students looking to become data scientists or data engineers.
Ma and her co-founders have also developed Sherlock ML, an innovative and secure data science platform that removes the need for organizations to create a new technical stack.
