Mariah Kill, M.S., Applied Economist, is a recent graduate from the Applied Economics M.S. program at Florida State University. As an undergraduate, she led an independent study in Old City Cemetery in Tallahassee, FL that used regression analysis to assess vandalism patterns, indicate damaged markers, and locate areas that need intervention from the historic societies. This creative data-driven project inspired her to pursue a Master of Science, where she refined her analytical and problem-solving skills through various applied econometrics courses. For her master’s capstone project, Mariah and her team developed a tool to help groups working on poverty issues in Florida group similar communities and ultimately direct funds to the areas most in need. She joined the Haas Center as an Applied Economist to assist in various impact studies, including the effects of COVID on small businesses.
