Undergraduate students and research

Undergraduate students involved in research

In line with the educational objectives of William & Mary, in my work I include undergraduate students in research activities. I work with students interested in Ph.D. programs, economics consulting, public policy, or data science jobs. I also supervise thesis and independent study projects.

To those students who are interested, I provide them with mentorship on job applications, interviews, coding skills, and guidance on their graduate school applications.
