As a graduating senior from Ithaca College pursuing a M.S. in Applied Economics and Management at Cornell this fall, I am looking forward to beginning the next chapter in my educational and professional career. I am currently employed with Ithaca College in several capacities, and will continue to be associated with the institution into the future through research projects within my department. I plan on continuing to balance work and education through the next two years, as an employee of AGAVA restaurant in Ithaca.
My academic interests focus on resource economics and resource allocation issues across boundaries under risky conditions. This interest began during a semester in Israel, and has been fostered by the tumultuous and pitched debates over resources and economic development in the global sphere. I hope to direct these inclinations toward a thesis which blends applied economics, political structures, and natural resource limitations.
