Currently, I’m working as an Economic Policy Analyst at the Louisiana Department of Revenue in the United States. My work centers around tax policy, but in particular, I’m working on our governor’s tax reform measure. I have been responsible for developing a lot of the policy that’s going into the governor’s proposal as well as for analytic work. In particular, I’ve developed the model that allows us to determine revenue impacts from making various changes to the tax code.
The Philosophy and Public Policy program was a great stepping stone for me. I’m convinced that I would not have been hired into the position I’m in without LSE on my resume and I know that the analytical skills that I developed while at the LSE have served me very well in doing that job that I’m doing.
