    Katy graduated from Agnes Scott College in 2018 with a double major in Mathematics and Economics.  Born and raised in Zimbabwe, she gained an interest in economics during the hyperinflation crisis and enjoys exploring the interplay of economic theory and real life.  She is always happy to have a conversation about mathematics, chemistry or economics but, if you start on the topic of game theory or behavioural economics, do not expect it to be a short discussion!  In her spare time you will find her in the kitchen baking cupcakes and desserts, dancing off the extra sugar on the salsa floor or visiting the theatre.
