I have been interested in the field of economics for several years now, particularly the field of public economics.  Most of my research interests are centered around government budgets, particularly at the state level, to understand how governments which are not allowed to incur debt respond to economic changes.

My undergraduate honors thesis, “It’s All Very Taxing: Interstate Tax Competition and the Balanced Budget,” explores this issue in depth.

Due to the structure of my academic program, I am not presently doing any research, as I am currently studying economic theory and my energy is devoted to that.
