After completing my BA in economics at the University of Nebraska – Lincoln, I was excited about the opportunity to join the research team at the Kansas City Fed. Here, I am working with Nida Cakir Melek and Elior Cohen on a range of research projects, specifically in the fields of energy and labor economics. As an RA at the KC Fed, I am thoroughly enjoying every aspect of my role. I appreciate the culture at the Bank, which fosters continuous growth, particularly within the research team. This position is great for someone seeking exposure to both academic and policy research that is impactful.
