Two Sigma just appointed a Harvard neuroscientist as chief of staff
The venture capital arm of hedge fund Two Sigma Investments just hired a chief of staff with a rather unique background. Juliette Han started at Two Sigma Ventures earlier this month.
Han comes over from rival hedge fund Citadel where she was the chief of staff to the hedge fund's chief people officer, concentrating on human capital development and other strategic HR functions, according to LinkedIn. She previously held the title of chief of staff title at McKinsey & Co. as it launched its New Ventures initiative, before which she was one of their management consultants.
But what truly sets Han apart is her rather robust educational background. She has a PhD in neuroscience from Harvard to go along with master’s in physiology from UCLA. She was recently honored by Moves Magazine as a mentor for other women in business. Han is also an advisor to Harvard Medical School’s alumni advisory council.
Two Sigma Ventures is a subsidiary of the New York hedge fund that invests in early-stage technology companies that focus on machine learning, data science and artificial intelligence – areas that the quant fund knows plenty about.
