Congratulations to Dili Maduabum for her many accomplishments as an economics major and math major at Mizzou! Dili was awarded an Undergraduate Research and Creative Activity Mentorship Program (URCAMP) scholarship to complete an independent research project under the supervision of Dr. Brittany Street. The project studies the effect of medical marijuana laws on drug arrests using the FBI Uniform Crime Reports (UCR) and the staggered rollout across states in a generalized difference-in-differences framework. Her project was chosen to be presented at the Dallas FED Economics Scholars Program for Undergraduate Research. Additionally, she participated in the IDDEAS@Stanford, a program that introduces undergraduates to doctoral programs and research at their Graduate School of Business. Upon graduation this December, Dili will be a predoctoral research assistant for Dr. Tavneet Suri at the Economics Group at MIT Sloan and hopes to apply to economics PhD programs the following fall.
