I went to Northwestern University in Evanston, Illinois. I graduated with a Bachelor of Arts in Economics.
I began with courses on Linear Algebra, Real Analysis, and Differential Equations. Once I took courses on Game Theory and Probability & Statistics, I realized my interests lay more in that area. I became an Economics Major. I took courses on Game Theory, Econometrics, Microeconomics, Macroeconomics, International Finance, Money & Banking, Environmental and Natural Resource Economics, and Public Finance.
I took a course in C++ Programming, and did an Independent Study for the Economics Department for which I used Python for data analysis. I used data from the Bureau of Labor Statistics and the Bureau of Economic Analysis to analyze the relationship between change in unemployment and economic growth, known as Okun's Law, in the context of the recent recession and recovery.
I participated actively in student government. In addition to my involvement on social issues and issues of student life, I served as a Web Developer, Server Administrator, and finally as Technology Director and member of the student government Executive Board. I was also a member of the University Web Steering Committee and the IT Advisory Committee.
