I want to be somebody, someday!

Chris Xa

 I am a native Memphian with a unique passion for Economics. I am a proud son of immigrant parents. Currently, I am pursuing a PhD in Economics at the University of Memphis specializing in Labor Economic, Education Economics, and Econometric. I have the honor to serve Peer Power as a Doctoral Fellow, where I study education data and school environments to better help the kids we serve. My topics of research (both within and without of Peer Power) include: Labor policies within educational settings, Teacher incentive policies and retention rates, Human capital measures, and Public funding allocation efficiency. Outside of school and work I love to cook and cheer on our Memphis Grizzles.
