Refreshments will be provided.
The panelists are all current seniors. They will discuss their plans after graduating, as well as their experiences throughout their time at Yale.
The bios of the panelists are attached below:
Jasper Feinberg is a senior in Berkeley College majoring in Economics and Mechanical Engineering. He interned at a small software start-up his first summer of college, before transitioning to an internship at Accenture as a sophomore. Last summer, Jasper interned in Blackstone’s real estate private equity group. After graduation, he plans to continue working in private equity. Jasper has also worked as a Tobin Research Assistant for Professor Cormac O’Dea, focusing on 401(k) plan design. Though his long-term plans are uncertain, Jasper may consider business or law school.
Yusuke Imamura is a senior in Saybrook College majoring in Economics and Math. During the summers of his first and second year, he studied abroad in Beijing and Kyoto, respectively. In Kyoto, he was a research assistant at the University of Kyoto, working in econometrics and financial theory. In the summer of his junior year, he interned at the Yale Investments Office, where he will return full time after graduation. Currently, his idea for his senior thesis (subject to change) concerns how people make choices about their education under uncertainty. Future plans remain uncertain, but he is interested in applying for an Economics PhD at some point.
Nikita Raheja is a senior in TD, double majoring in Economics/Math and Ethnicity, Race, & Migration. She currently serves as one of the co-Presidents of the Undergraduate Women in Econ group. Last summer, Nikita worked for Professor Ebonya Washington as a research assistant, studying Native American Voting Rights. Outside of Yale, she worked extensively in the nonprofit sector with a global peace education organization named CISV. She is currently serving a two year term as the National Junior Representative for the US, overseeing the organization. In the future, Nikita would like to receive a PhD in Econ, hopefully to study climate economics and development. She is happy to talk about anything from double majoring, to diversity and access in Econ, to what it’s like to work in a nonprofit organization.
Devesh is a senior majoring in Economics and Mathematics, interested in pursuing a graduate degree in Economics at some point in the future. Devesh’s interests in applying data analysis and econometrics skills to complex business problems drew him to pursuing Economic Consulting as a career path immediately after graduation.
Isabella Cheng is a senior in Hopper College, double majoring in Economics and East Asian Studies, with a focus on contemporary China. In previous summers, she has studied abroad in Beijing and interned for a clean energy NGO in Shanghai. Last summer, she worked at ideas42, a non-profit design and consulting firm which uses insights from behavioral science to address social inequalities. She is looking forward to returning to ideas42 immediately following graduation but is also excited about the prospect of eventually going back to school to learn more about Asia and possibly living and working in Asia.
