I fell in love with the ideas of Austrian economics in undergrad but never had the opportunity to pursue it to the extent I wanted. After a few years, I found the MA Fellows program through the Mercatus Center which rekindled my passion for economics.
My experiences have given me a fantastic tool set to understand how our world works in combination with my previous experience in political science and anthropology. I've improved my writing skills exponentially and feel more confident in engaging with others in public policy.
Entering my MA Fellowship with the Mercatus Center and co-authoring a policy brief with Mercatus scholar Kofi Ampaabeng.
Try new topics in economics. I went in wanting to work on healthcare and technological innovation and ended up having a fascination within the energy industry where I now work. You don't know you love it until you try it.
I have accepted a full time position as a Regulatory Economist with RegTech startup HData. My long-term goal is to create my own research team where we will build cutting-edge computing techniques to better equip economist and other social scientists for engaging in the public policy space.
