I am a project assistant for Professor Menzie Chinn, former senior economist with the White House Council of Economic Advisers. I was drawn to this position because of my strong interest in Professor Chinn’s research in international trade. We are doing research on the topic of elasticity of demand for US imports and exports.

Signe Janoska-Bedi, MIPA

Rourke O’Brien’s course on Inequality, Race and Public Policy helped me develop an understanding of the policy-making process and how it is impacted by social factors. Mark Copelovitch’s course on International Governance also helped me learn about policy-making in intergovernmental institutions.
