How has Dickinson prepared you for life after graduation?
My work in quantitative economics in addition to psychology at Dickinson has given me exposure to a strong background in statistics and applied research. By embracing the liberal arts and taking a wide breadth of courses that truly interested me, I found my passion for this cross-discipline intersection, the study of behavioral economics, and so much more. I'm really interested in how people make decisions, and, in fact, I’m fascinated by the psychology behind economics. I often ask questions related to how markets work, how consumers make decisions, and what can businesses do to make sure their products meet consumers' expectations. I am excited to apply what I have learned throughout my experiences at Dickinson to my career.
