Erica Leavitt, 2011, Economics

I worked at Resources for the Future in Washington, DC, where I conducted research on the social welfare impacts of suggested retail prices. I plan to develop my project into a senior thesis and eventually publish a paper in an economic journal. Each intern was granted a large amount of freedom, which taught us to independently pursue a fruitful research project from start to finish. We also attended various events hosted by Resources for the Future such as conferences and lecture series.
