Why are you excited to work at the Beeck Center? The Beeck Center merges two areas of interest that resonate deeply with me; service through policy and innovative technology. The Beeck Center leverages cutting-edge technological tools to address important and complex social problems. I think with this approach can be really helpful in terms of better targeting and increasing the impact of policies enacted in response to the pandemic.

What areas of work are you passionate about and why? I am very passionate about research, especially in trying to understand issues in depth and assessing the best solutions. I also think advocacy, either through public speech, presentations, or formal briefings and documents, is very important and brings out my creative side.

How will your position contribute to your future goals? Through this position I hope to gain some skills in interpreting and using data, as well as working in a team, and hopefully management. Also importantly, it can help me make valuable connections as I pursue a career in law.
