Robert Day School of Economics and Finance at Claremont McKenna College
I graduated from Notre Dame in 2012 and I'm currently an associate professor in the Robert Day School of Economics and Finance at Claremont Mckenna College.
Besides the professional opportunities, it is hard to overstate the impact Notre Dame had on my intellectual life. The training I received provided me with tools and skills that allowed me to answer questions as diverse as the environment I faced during my graduate studies. However, it did more than that, it reinforced my curiosity and eagerness for understanding aspects of human behavior that started way before I learned what a budget constraint was.
Those two aspects are quite instrumental for an individual seeking to push the frontier as well as help those inside -- our students--, to get closer to it.
Assistant Professor of Economics
University of Louisville
At ND, I gained tools to critically and thoughtfully approach research questions, and conduct rigorous empirical studies about social issues.
Working directly with Economics faculty was undoubtedly the most formative part of my experience at ND. Their support and mentorship throughout my graduate work and beyond has been invaluable in helping me develop as an economist.
