The Faces of Economics
The economics department played a huge role in my undergraduate education that informs the work and research I do today. It gave me a critical understanding of economics as a field and a strong foundation in econometrics and quantitative analysis.
UROP provided me the very first research experience and give me the opportunity to have a close connection with professors. Professor Peter Philips at the Economics Department, especially encouraged me to think critically and gave me a lot of great life advice.
I learned a great deal from my time at Utah, especially the economics and mathematics departments. The professors engaged me in critical thinking and took time to discuss ideas beyond the coursework.
