Programme: MSc Real Estate Economics and Finance,  2009

Current Position: Senior Research Analyst, John Burns Real Estate Consulting, LLC 

Country: United States of America

I enjoyed every moment of my time as a graduate student at the LSE. Aside from the sheer magnitude of intellectual capital present on campus, London in itself provided the ideal backdrop for experiencing university life to the fullest. Without a doubt, my experiences and stories of the LSE and the city are life changing. I have had experiences as an investment banking analyst and real estate consultant. I was previously an economic research analyst at the Milken Institute (a prominent think tank in the U.S.) and   am now a Senior Research Analyst at John Burns Real Estate Consulting, LLC (an independent research provider and consulting firm focused on the housing industry).
