What I've learned

I've had the good fortune to participate in a number of internships as an undergraduate.
Each one has taught me something unique about how to think and solve problems.

Consumer Financial Protection Bureau

I joined the Decision-making and Behavioral Studies Team in the Office of Research in May 2017 and will continue interning with them through December. I reviewed literature for an economist’s paper about the theoretical foundation for disclosure requirements in consumer financial contracts, and I developed a mental model influence diagram of overdraft after interviewing Bureau researchers and attorneys. I'm currently developing a methodology in R and Stata for collapsing private consumer account data into anonymized groups while minimizing econometric bias and the loss of statistical power as part of Project Catalyst.

Grinnell College Office of Investments

I wrote a market mapping report about the private equity space in the Middle East and North Africa for my college's investment office during fall 2016 and ultimately proposed investing in a number of funds. Additionally, I participated in conference calls with Grinnell's Director of Investments and fund managers.

Bloomberg L.P.

I joined Bloomberg L.P. as a Financial Product Analytics and Sales Intern in summer 2016. In their rotational internship program, I examined the financial technology market, presented management with information about competitors' strategies, and visited clients on-site. I also learned how to use the Bloomberg Professional software and its Excel API functionality.

During the academic year, I work at my school's Data Analysis and Social Inquiry Lab. I was also appointed by the student government president to co-chair the Student Initiative Fund Committee. In the past, I've worked as a Math and Statistics Tutor, a Student Advisor, and in my college's dining hall. In 2015, I volunteered for the European Commission at the World Expo in Milan, Italy.
