My name is David Mkrtchian and I am a third year student double majoring in Economics and Legal Studies. I am extremely interested in pursuing an economic policy internship this coming fall. In particular, I am interested in the economics of financial regulation and economic development. This past summer, I interned for the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority. Since then, I have performed research for the Central Bank of Armenia on using political risk insurance as a developmental tool. Currently, I am performing research for Professor Robert Cooter of Boalt Law School on the impact of intellectual property law on economic growth. I look forward to interning in Washington, D.C. to apply what I have learned in the classroom and observe how policy is actually implemented. I am extremely grateful to the Matsui Center for supporting my internship and study with the UCDC Center.
