I have been researching with Professor Bloom since my freshman year. He is the founder of the Wellbeing at Work project (http://wellbeing.nd.edu/) which focuses on work related wellbeing among those in "caring" professions (teachers, humanitarian aid workers, clergy, etc.). As an undergraduate researcher, I focused on the quantitative analysis of international well being surveys, as well as extensive literature research. I have decided to spend my senior year focusing on my thesis, examining the impact of marijuana legislation on part time youth employment.
Data analysis and qualitative research methods. I am also interested in international economic development, as well as financial analysis of firms.
