The Pi Shaped blog is about the intersection of business and science.  Some posts may lean more heavily in either the direction as I may focus solely on the stock market or  analyze a specific biotech company, but of particular interest is applying innovations from the lab bench to real world problems.

There’s a concept floating around about the shapes people adopt.  I consider myself a “T-shaped” individual.  Great depth of knowledge in one specialized area.  Broad base of general knowledge in many areas.  However, I’m on a quest to develop into a “Pi-shaped” individual.  My goal is to present to you, the reader, a not-so-random assortment of posts and musing from the experiences and knowledge intended to allow us both to become just a little bit more Pi-shaped.  Or T-shaped.  Or any-shaped.  In short, let us shape each other into better people.

The natural path of being a young 20-something in the sciences led me to graduate school, where I developed my vertical component to my T.  I received my M.Sc. in organic chemistry, but one of the major themes I took away from grad school is that it really is best to be true to oneself and no one else.  Phew, for a minute there, I lost myself.

I’ve continuously sought out the “why” and “how” of events that affect my life directly.  The current economic downturn has encouraged me to study our financial system.  Our economy has endured the longest recession since the great depression.  I had to know why.  I had to know how.

I hope by writing this blog I can impart any sort of knowledge I’ve gained in the process of asking why and how to you, the reader.  And, hopefully, by doing so, we’ll both learn a thing or two. 

Luke Ceo is currently Head of Business Development and Operations at VeriSIM Life, a startup working on solving the long, costly drug discovery process.  In a previous life, he was a chemist and performed research on polymeric nanoparticles for targeted drug delivery at MIT.  Prior to that, he got a small taste of startup life as a scientist at Ligon Discovery, an early-stage biotech startup commercializing small molecule microarrays, where he worked on expanding the company’s intellectual property and validated lead hits discovered in their high throughput screening process.
