1. Leontief Multipliers: Wassily Leontief created multipliers that can describe the economics of a nation from matrices describing the flow of goods and services. Our team is expanding the research previously done by analyzing 60+ nations with their industry specific multipliers. We are comparing the size of the multipliers from country to country and throughout time, analyzing which patterns emerge and how they are related to other indicators of economic growth.
2. Personally, I have started a project in my Econometrics class focused on the determinants of sexual assault reporting and other measures of survivor resources. I studied the Texas' Crime Victim Compensation program for 2019 and hope to expand to other years and other states to understand how to improve resources available to survivors. I would love to expand this research to analyzing the laws and court precedents in the US effect on reporting assault and resources for survivors.
