Having worked in research at an Icelandic financial institution, I came to Jackson to seek out resources that would prepare me for a global career in economic and financial policy. Stephen Roach, Senior Fellow and my mentor at Jackson, provided me with great support in terms of my career search and relevant academic path. The guidance of such an experienced and renowned financial and economic professional, as well as the availability of Yale alumni at global institutions I met at career events, was vital in securing my internship at Morgan Stanley Research.
