Economic Research Associate, Law Student

Harvard Law School

B.S. Statistics & B.A. Economics, 2014. 3L at Harvard Law School. Previously worked in economic research and policy.


I grew up in Minnesota and graduated with a B.S. in Statistics and a B.A. in Economics from Loyola in 2014.

I am currently a 3L student at Harvard Law School, and will be returning to Chicago in 2019 after graduation as a transactional associate at a large corporate law firm. In law school, I have focused my studies on corporate transactions, tax law, and financial regulation, and have interned at the SEC and CFTC.

Before law school, I worked in economic research, where I conducted analyses using statistical programming packages to assist Ph.D. economists with academic and policy-oriented research. I worked for two years in macroeconomic research at the Federal Reserve Bank of Kansas City, and also completed summer internships at Analysis Group, an economic consulting firm, and at the Environmental Defense Fund, a policy non-profit.

At Loyola, I was involved in Alpha Kappa Psi Business Fraternity, the Interdisciplinary Honors Program, and Loyola Economics Forum. I also worked for several professors in the economics department and as a peer tutor at the Center for Tutoring and Academic Excellence.
