M.P.A. Candidate at the Woodrow Wilson School, Econ Wonk, Writer
I started this blog to examine public policy issues, create greater exposure to goings-on overseas, and, most importantly, to write more.
My interests: making economics work for U.S. foreign policy, international development, India and the American Revolution, law enforcement and crime, and making L.A. a better city.
My background: Before I came to Princeton, I worked at the Federal Reserve Board in Washington, D.C. on issues related to monetary policy. I got my B.A. in economics at UCLA.
My volunteering: I did financial education outreach for the Board while in D.C. I taught creative writing to wonderful 7th graders in Los Angeles.
My writing: And if all that doesn’t work out I still have my thriller novel. It follows a former human trafficking victim in the search for her kidnappers.
