Online Education Manager

Igor Gembitsky

Igor is the Online Education Manager for LearnLiberty.org, a project that aims to expose young people to the foundations of classical liberal ideas across a wide variety of disciplines. Before joining the IHS to pursue his passions for liberty and prosperity, he had worked for two years as a neuroscience researcher studying neurodegerative disease in Birmingham, Alabama.

He graduated from the State University of New York at New Paltz in 2008 with a degree in Biology. While in college, he had played executive roles in student government and founded and presided over his college’s Libertarian Club.  

While he spends much leisure time exploring big cities and immersing himself in local culture through his love of travel, Igor has long enjoyed hiking and backpacking as they offer the refuge of a persistent and unchanging vantage from which to reflect on the accelerating pace of change of our post-industrial, post-modern, transhumanist world. He has been known to tinker with electronic hardware, build wooden furniture, and spend copious amounts of time experimenting in the kitchen.
