Before entering the legal profession, Mr Shapiro conducted research for the US Navy in the field of experimental hydrodynamics and supervised the fabrication of advanced prototypes at Martin Marietta Corporation. His graduate research at the Johns Hopkins University involved the use of optical interferometry in the field of experimental mechanics.
