"Hello! I am Austin and I am an economics student and I joined PSP in Winter 2022. My main academic interests are in studying Microeconomics, Game Theory, Behavioral Economics, Economic History, and Public Policy. I have worked on a few research projects including my honors thesis where I studied the tribalistic voting preferences of the US electorate. I plan on applying to Economics PhD programs for Fall 2023.
When I’m not busy studying I spend most of my time volunteering with local youth robotics and scouting. I got a lot from these programs when I was a student and I think it’s important for me to give back and help the kids get the same positive experiences from the program that I had. Below you can see a picture of me and my service dog Archie at the FIRST Robotics World Championships!"
