Julio Garin, Ph.D. 2012 

Associate Professor
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.
