My name is John Saunders. I am a Junior at the University at Buffalo, majoring in Mathematics and Economics. My research interests currently are in salience of risk and joint decision making. I plan to pursue a Ph.D. in economics and hopefully either become a part of academia or find work in policy formation. Some interesting facts about me are, I am a cellist of 12 years and a language enthusiast. I am currently studying French, and I recently became a member of the French Honors Society Pi Delta Phi. I have plans to learn Portuguese and Martiniquais Creole next. Eventually, I would want to conduct research about the economic inequality related to language.
