Hi! I’m a first-year student in the joint economics and finance program, interested in household finance. I’m originally from Saint Paul, MN and graduated from Kenyon College with a BA in economics. Before coming to Madison, I worked as an RA at the Boston Fed for three years. I’m happy to chat about the joint finance program, the first-year workload, starting the PhD with a liberal arts background, the Madison restaurant scene, and anything else that’ll help make your grad school decision easier!
