Laurie Shaw
I have a diverse range of research interests, from astrophysics and cosmology to finance and economics. I obtained my PhD from Cambridge, studying the structure and evolution of dark matter halos in N-body simulations, as well as their subhalo populations. I went on to be a postdoctoral fellow at McGill and then Yale, working on topics related to galaxy clusters and the Sunyaev-Zel’dovich effect. I left academia in 2012 to work at Winton Capital Management, a $30bn London-based algorithmic hedge fund, researching and developing new trading systems in futures and equities markets. I recently took a career break to come to Harvard, where I intend to continue pursuing my interests in many different areas of data science.
