What did you/are you studying in college?

Economics and Statistics

What are your favorite non-fiction books you have read?

Haven't read a ton (hence joining... to read more) but I enjoy anything relating to Behavioral Econ and psychology (Kahneman and friends).

What kind of books would you be interested in having the group read together?

Noam Chomsky! Anything really... but I prefer books that relate to contemporary topics.

What area of DC/ time of the week would you most likely be available to attend a discussion?

Preferably DC metro area! And I am available weekdays after 6 and weekends.

Tell us a little more about yourself.

I spent 4 years in a college surrounded by people hungry for knowledge, however, I was rather lost and was unable to find that hunger for knowledge myself. Now that I have graduated and spent a few months working the 9 to 5 desk job, I am starting to figure out what and how I want to learn. I want to go back to school at some point, but I don't think I can go until I have a clear idea of what I want to go back for. The only way I will figure it out is by reading and exploring new fields. I do know I am obsessed with consumer behavior and decision making (discovered after a long summer of working retail...). We'll see what happens!

Introduction

I am a recent college grad, now employed in DC!
