I am interested in discovering optimal ways of reducing wealth and social inequality domestically. I am also interested in finding effective methods of relieving the political tension plaguing and dividing the country using reason, respect, and compassion. I am planning to complete a second Bachelor’s degree in Industrial and Systems Engineering from the Georgia Institute of Technology upon graduating from Emory University.
BA in Economics and Mathematics, 2021
BS in Industrial and Systems Engineering, 2023

This paper describes how cloud computing tools widely used in the instruction of data scientists can be introduced and taught to economic students as part of their curriculum. The demonstration centers around a workflow where the instructor creates a virtual server and the students only need internet access and a web browser to complete in-class tutorials, assignments, or exams. Given how prevalent cloud computing platforms are becoming for data science, introducing these techniques into students’ econometrics training would prepare them to be more competitive when job hunting, while making instructors and administrators re-think what a computer laboratory means on campus.
