RenTech New Hires: PhD in what exactly?
I've read from a variety of sources that RenTech frequently recruits from PhD's in pure/applied math, physics, comp-sci, etc. but beyond an occasional reference to "information theory" or "machine learning" I haven't found much information about what these PhD's were actually doing.
I'm mostly curious about the exact work some of the recruits were doing during their PhD that RenTech thought was valuable. Ideally I'd like to find some dissertations from recent recruits to see if there are some common themes either in techniques used or subject area.
Does anyone here have any insight into this or any directions you could point me in to learn more? Thanks.
