Ed is currently a MA Public Policy graduate student, focusing on the financial services sector. Prior to joining Public Policy, he completed his Masters as a Sloan Fellow at Stanford GSB. Prior to graduate school, Ed worked in Asia in banking and microfinance. He led the China practice for a boutique consulting firm that helped banks figure out how to lend to small businesses. Last summer, he did his public policy research internship in D.C. in the Digital Financial Services Practice of the IFC, the private sector investment arm of the World Bank, where he worked on projects to leverage technology to expand access to banking in the developing world. In his spare time, which is scarce these days raising a toddler, he enjoys practicing with the Stanford Tri team. After graduation, Ed hopes to pursue work with a financial technology start up working with underserved banking clients. Over the long run, he would like to work at a multilateral institution like the World Bank on the messy system level problems at the intersection of the public and private sector.
