Through the challenges of pandemic learning and a return to traditional in-person classes, Kaitlyn has excelled in all of her courses. She is the type of student who thrives with challenging material ranging from building and analyzing a model of the macro-economy to fully solving a consumer optimization problem. Kaitlyn analyzed policies encouraging the adoption of electric cars in her senior research, using sophisticated time-series regressions to show some benefits of policy support in transitioning the market to electric cars in Germany. This work has prepared her well for graduate school; she will attend Florida State next year for a Master’s in Applied Economics. This degree path is an excellent fit. In addition to completing her senior research last fall, Kaitlyn worked with another Economics student under the mentorship of Dr. Khushbu Mishra to undertake an economic impact study for the Volusia County Cultural Council. This report was recently completed, and the Economics faculty were proud to see the professional work our students did in applied economics for Volusia County. Kaitlyn’s long-term goal is to work in macroeconomics. Her professors have no doubt she’ll be successful, and they believe we will all likely benefit from her work in the future.
