Nicholas Carollo from Kemmerer, Wyoming

As an undergraduate at UW, Nicholas obtained a double major in international studies and economics. He comments that the interdisciplinary courses offered by the international studies program were an excellent complement to his economics education, and gave him the ability to think about international issues from a wide variety of perspectives. Further, the writing and critical thinking skills that the international studies degree fosters have been an important part of his success in graduate school. According to him, the University of Wyoming offers an outstanding education, and he couldn’t have made it to where he is today without the help of the professors and advisors who constantly go out of their way to help students achieve their goals.

After graduating from the University of Wyoming, Nicholas earned a degree in MSc in Economics (with distinction) at The London School of Economics.

He recently was hired as a research assistant to three economists at Harvard University. His research interests include macro, monetary, and international economics.
