Hello everyone! My name is Mimi Yang and welcome to my blog! For my senior project, I will be working with Mr. Liu, a researcher at the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau. He will be helping me with my research on the gender wage gap and how it has been affected by COVID-19. I hope I will be able to gain more experience in research through this opportunity.
This week I am starting off with literature research to narrow down the scope of my research while also getting familiar with the equipment they sent me. I have had a few bumps along the road so far. The equipment that was sent to me did not have the needed software downloaded so I could not access the database for research. My advisors have been very helpful and considerate, walking me through every step to help me with the set up. Hopefully, I will be able to get everything ready by next week.
I am excited to be sharing my journey with everyone, and I will let you know if I find anything interesting!
