Vi Nguyen

Director, Data Science & Analytics


Vi’s career north star revolves around the belief that education can unlock great human potential, particularly in under served communities. She leads QuestBridge’s Data Science and Analytics team, using data to identify key segments and needs of young adults from low-income backgrounds as they transition from high school to college, and to their professional careers. Prior to QuestBridge, Vi worked with strategy, academic, and student support teams in the City Colleges of Chicago to set and monitor performance metrics across the student life-cycle from enrollment to graduation. When she’s not searching for ways in which data and technology can support systematic improvements in education, she enjoys jumpstarting youth development programs, and alumni communities. Vi holds a B.A. in Economics from Yale, and an M.S. in Computational Analysis & Public Policy from the University of Chicago.
