Shanna McIntyre is founder and chief data officer at Delos Insurance, an insurance technology startup that's using satellite data, AI, and climate modeling to bring cutting edge accuracy to natural disaster predictions. She contributed an article to the very first print issue of The New Modality called "Climate Change Heroism In The Insurance Industry: How Insurance Can Help Us All Build Climate Resilience."
Before founding Delos, Shanna spent more than a decade performing probabilistic analysis of spacecraft system design and performance. Astrophysics was her gateway drug.
“My dream for a better world is to allow maximum flexibility in our systems, with freedom to play at the edges, so we can discover these unknown paths to exciting futures we never even imagined.”
