Alaa Abdelfattah ’17 is a 4th year Economics PhD student at UC Davis where she specializes in macro and labor. Her dissertation is a series of essays on the effect of labor market structure (i.e., minimum wage and child care) on different groups' employment, wages, and fertility outcomes. Prior to graduate school, Alaa was an analyst in the antitrust and competition practice at Charles River Associates' Boston office. 

Kate Reinmuth ’17 is a second year PhD student in the Department of Economics at Stanford University. She currently works with Professor Heidi Williams on topics related to the economics of innovation. Before Stanford, Kate spent three years at NERA Economic Consulting working in the antitrust and competition policy group.  

Marcos Barrozo ’17 is a 4th year PhD student in Public Policy at Harvard University. His main fields are international trade and environmental economics. In his work so far, he studies the beef supply chain, the leading cause of deforestation in the Amazon. 

All students are welcome to attend and learn how recent Midd alumni have applied their liberal arts education and economics classes in their lives and careers, and learn about opportunities and considerations for Economics/IP&E majors interested in pursuing careers in research. 

We look forward to seeing some of you there!
