My name is Alexander Gomez. I graduated with a Bachelor's of Arts in Economics and I'm currently a graduate student in Master's of Science in Quantitative Economics at San Francisco State University. Going into AEASP, I hope to develop skills that will guide me into a career at the Federal Reserve Bank in San Francisco. I look forward to obtaining research experience and I am extremely grateful for this opportunity. Moving forward, I plan to pursue a Ph.D. in Economics so I can contribute to research that will help disadvantaged groups and encourage others into pursuing an Economics career.
