Mr. Research To Banking
I became interested in economic research during my undergraduate education and decided I wanted to pursue a Ph.D. in economics. Having experience in research, I earned a position with the Federal Reserve Board. While I have enjoyed working with the Board, I decided that I want to work more directly with financial markets in developing countries.

The first was when I was invited to my first conference to present my research on water markets in Western states during undergrad. I was happy to see my work be recognized and impact the conversation of water conservation. The second was when I earned my position with the Federal Reserve Board as I was the first from my University to do so.
Post MBA Goal:
After earning an MBA, I hope to help growing firms in developing countries to have access to the capital they need to scale their operations. Part of my undergraduate research was to uncover impediments to firm growth in developing countries, and I hope to help alleviate this problem by expanding financing options for these firms.
