Research

As Director of Enactus, we have completed several real-world, student-powered projects.  This includes launching a social business in Colombia, becoming certified mentors assisting at-risk youth in Newark, NJ, and battered women in Warren County all by applying the positive power of business.   These projects have led me to conduct research on the economics of the poor and review the theories of Muhammad Yunus and Esther Duflo.  Following the research, I was able to witness those theories in action in Guapi, Colombia.
