Biography

I am currently a Doctoral Student in Economics at Colorado State University, and a Data Scientist at Mountain Data Group.

I earned my Master of Arts in Economics from the Department of Economics at Colorado State University in 2019 and my Bachelor of Arts in Mathematical Economics from Colorado College in 2017. My research interests lie in understanding the welfare effects of public policy programs. I am particularly interested in examining health and socio-economic inequalities. My research combines rigorous economic theory, econometric and statistical tools, natural language processing algorithms, rich micro data and large-scale simulations to answer important questions at the intersection of public policy and population health.

Courses

  • ECON 306-801: Intermediate Microeconomics

    Syllabus

    This course builds on your knowledge of microeconomics from Principles of Microeconomics. This class takes the concepts from the introductory course and extends them, analyzing competitive and noncompetitive markets with respect to their efficiency. It takes the general models you learned in Principles and builds mathematical models which represent the decisions of consumers, producers and workers.

  • ECON 202-801: Principles of Microeconomics

    Syllabus

    Economics is the study of how people interact with each other and with their natural surroundings to provide for their livelihoods. This course will address the production and distribution of goods. We will use economic models to study economic stagnation, economic growth, social dilemmas, economic power, labor markets, competitive and monopolistic markets, and inequality.

  • ECON 460-801: Economic Development

    Syllabus

    The course focuses on the economics of developing countries from a comparative perspective to economic conditions in developed countries. The course emphasizes the need to distinguish growth and development as distinct conceptual categories driven by different, context–specific structural characteristics and conditions. It explores the processes by which countries enter into a stage where the standards of living of the masses of people are increased and these increases are sustained over time. One of the central issues in economic development is the issue of economic growth. Other issues include poverty and inequality, the Colonial legacy, the environment, institutions and globalization, technological change, the role of the state, multilateral institutions as well as the importance of gender. This course focuses on both the macro and micro issues that are central to growth and development.
