Jimmy Mendez

I am a senior economics major at Florida State University, minoring in mathematics. Some of my hobbies include playing guitar, building LEGO sets, and reading. Currently, I am reading “Prediction Machines” by Ajay Agrawal, Avi Goldfarb, and Joshua Gans, which explains the economics of AI. I like to learn about how new technologies can be used within the scope of economics. Some of my research interests include inequality and international trade. Eventually, I would like to pursue a Ph.D. in economics.
