Professional Experience:
I was selected by my professor to assist in the preparation of a report to the Department of Energy concerning a literature review of energy security in the United States, focusing on the oil and gas sector. I was responsible for creating, organizing, and maintaining a database of relevant academic articles, industry research, and locations of data sets. In addition to researching and discovering new work relevant to the review, I was also tasked to read, review, and summarize the work of prominent scholars in the field of energy security, format data sets for use in SAS, and generate a working bibliography.
In pursuit of my major in Economics, I studied energy markets, international trade theory, development economics, human capital, and regional economic studies. I have also strengthened my quantitative understanding of these economic concepts by taking a number of advance mathematics and statistics courses, culminating in a study of real analysis, the mathematics of finance, game theory, and econometrics, in which I became comfortable with the statistical package, STATA.

I have spent two semesters on the Dean's List and was inducted into ODE, the economics honors society. Later, I was elected as the Vice President of the local ODE chapter at GWU. My chief duties include maintaining a database of members available for tutoring and matching students who are need of tutoring services with our best fit candidate, event organization, and communication.
