RESEARCH AND POLICY PROJECTS May 2012 Present Policy Prospectus: Issues Behind the News Writers and artists today are promoters and entrepreneurs for their own work. I read, research, and write about concurrent public policy issues; then maximize my income by increasing followers using social media tools and online advertisements. Subjects of particular interest include financial regulation, monetary policy, labor relations, and health care administration. The goal is to simplify complex concepts and problems into easy and relatable ideas.

The Effect of Partial Unemployment Insurance on Total Unemployment Rates My undergraduate thesis used data that was provided by the New York State Department of Labor and the Bureau of Labor Statistics with the mission of finding a better way to do unemployment insurance. My econometric model provided evidence that a progressive partial unemployment insurance system creates incentives for workers to find part-time employment and therefore brings down the total unemployment rate in some circumstances.
