Fields of Interest
Political Economy, Applied Microeconomics, Development Economics
I graduated from Middlebury College in 2013 with a B.A. in Chinese and Political Science. Before coming to Stanford, I worked as a senior research associate for three years at the American Enterprise Institute, a think tank in Washington D.C., primarily researching international political economy topics. I am currently interested in exploring questions related to the impact that political and economic institutions have on economic development, and analysis of policies that improve economic growth and social welfare.
I am currently working with David Broockman on a project that explores the impact that the Voting Rights Act had on Southern Politics. I am also working with Ali Yurukoglu on a project that models the supply of cable news to understand the effect of election coverage during the 2012 presidential campaign.
MiddView is Middlebury College’s fall new student orientation program and will include a five-day on campus orientation and three-day trips program.
MiddView Intern: The MiddView Interns are integral members of our MiddView Steering Committee and serve as critical links between student leaders, staff, faculty, new students (first-years, transfers, and exchanges), families, and the Middlebury College community. They are ambassadors of the College and the faces and voices of MiddView. Key responsibilities include developing a vision and schedule for MiddView 2018, communicating with new students and their families, managing the MiddView website, social media, and other communications, planning and assisting with events, managing complex logistics, and training and supervising other student staff. These positions offer employment from March through September 2018. MiddView Interns are expected to work 4-8 hours per week during the academic year and then transition to 37.5 hours per week during the summer (with over-time virtually assured during the week of MiddView).
MiddView Trips Intern: MiddView Trips Interns serve as critical members of the College’s MiddView planning team. They help to design and coordinate all aspects of the MiddView trips; Middlebury’s three day, two-night off-campus adventure that explores Vermont’s cultural, community or outdoor landscapes, providing small-group connections amongst first-year students to ease their transition to college. There are three positions available. Each intern will work on one kind of trip topic: Wilderness trips, Vermont Explorations trips, or Community Engagement trips. All three interns should expect a lot of collaboration between trip types.

Join female students, faculty/staff, townspeople, and alumnae in a College-wide discussion on the role of women in 2018. Modeled after a “Lean In Circle,” we will discuss whether women need to lean in to the workplace or if opting out is a better solution for today’s feminists. We invite women from all generations and backgrounds to join this conversation so that we may have a range of perspectives – networking encouraged too! Light refreshments will be provided.
5:00pm – 6:30pm Keynote by Nancy Gibbs (in Wilson Hall)
Nancy Gibbs is the most recent Editor in Chief of TIME Magazine. She was the first woman to hold the position, and has written more cover stories for TIME than any other writer. In the last year at TIME, Ms. Gibbs started a project called the FIRSTS project, which features women who have changed the world by being the first females to receive notoriety in their field. She interviewed women such as Hillary Clinton, Madeleine Albright, Nobel laureate Elizabeth Blackburn, Sheryl Sandberg, and Aretha Franklin – among others. She has co-written two best-selling presidential histories, and she oversaw the domestic, international and tablet editions of TIME. Gibbs graduated from Yale summa cum laude, with honors in history, and has a degree in politics and philosophy from Oxford, where she was a Marshall scholar.
Please join the community for a dialogue between Middlebury Women Leaders President, Erin Van Gessel ’17.5, and Ms. Gibbs, followed by Q&A with the audience. Ms. Gibbs will speak about her career and discuss what it takes to get ahead as a woman in the workplace.

4:00pm-5:00pm Women’s Rights Discussion with Abenaki Women (in Hillcrest)
Join Middlebury Women Leaders for a discussion of women’s rights with women from the local Nulhegan Abenaki Native American tribe.

We will explore differences in matriarchal vs patriarchal traditions with our Abenaki guests.
8:00pm-9:30pm She Should Walk Fashion Show (in Wilson Hall)
Today, only 20% of seats in U.S. Congress are held by women. That ranks the United States as101st on the Inter-Parliamentary Union (IPU)’s list of female representation in legislatures around the world. Organizations like She Should Run are trying to change that. She Should Run is a non-partisan 501(c)3 based in Washington, DC that recruits and trains women to run for political office. Since the 2016 election, more than 15,000 women have contacted She Should Run interested in entering government.
Please join Middlebury Women Leaders and the College community at our “She Should Walk” Fashion Show, where we will fund raise for She Should Run before the 2018 midterm elections. Cheer on our female students who walk the catwalk in outfits from Middlebury’s female student-run business, Share to Wear. The event will also feature appearances and statements from local female politicians, in addition to young women in the Middlebury community.
There is no charge to attend the event, but we will be accepting suggested donations and facilitating the sale of She Should Run gifts and apparel.
