Pursuing M.S. in Economics

Toulouse School of Economics


Hey, I’m Mason!

I am now finishing a Master’s degree in Economics at the Toulouse School of Economics, having previously graduated in May 2020 from the University of Oklahoma with a Bachelor’s degree in Economics and International Studies.

To see my most recent projects, you can view my github profile.

Some of my previous university projects include capital concentration in Argentina at the beginning of the 20th century, populism and economic inequality in Turkey, the optimization of pay-what-you-want pricing models, and the relationship between increasing industrial concentration and inequality in the United States.

For my personal projects, I have created an R package, sciteR, to gather journal-level citation data from scite, a Shiny web app to track the spread of COVID-19, and a simple R script to quickly visualize cryptocurrency price trends.
