"The first year after graduating HWS and for the past four summers, I’ve worked for the International Labor Organization in Geneva, Switzerland as an external collaborator. I have co-authored work on the informal economy, trade liberalization and the trade collapse of 2008. My research both at American University and the ILO challenges mainstream economics theory and methodology."
