Position: Investment Analyst, Education Technology at Emerson Collective
Graduation Year:

"The Research Honors Track in the political science department helped me to develop critical thinking, quantitive and qualitative analysis, and problem solving skills that have been invaluable to my career. I remember my honors thesis focused on the predicative indicators for why a state might adopt new early childhood education-related legislation - that combination of quantitive analysis and rigorous research is integral to how I approach a lot of my work today."

"I work on the venture investing team at Emerson Collective, a social change organization dedicated to removing barriers to opportunity for everyone. I specialize in the organization's education technology investments, focusing my time on identifying promising entrepreneurs, driving the diligence process, and helping the team develop a point of view on particular parts of the market."
