Emma van Inwegen graduated from the University of Washington in June 2015 with a degree in mathematics, economics, and philosophy. Under the tutelage of Jake Vigdor and Scott Allard she completed a capstone examining short term effects of the minimum wage ordinance to prices.
As the Research Analyst for the Evans School, she supports a multidisciplinary team of social scientists examining the impact of minimum wage increases on labor markets, business practice, and household quality of life. Her current focus is on the impacts of the minimum wage on firms' revenue and labor demand.
In her free time she enjoys backpacking, biking, baking bread, and brewing beer. Apparently also alliterations.
