Kevin D.


Kevin was born and raised in Austin, Texas. He attended The University of Texas at Austin where he was in the Liberal Arts Honors program and-double majored in Economics and Psychology. He spent a semester in Washington, DC interning for the United Nations Economic Commission for Latin America and the Caribbean, and then went back to UT Austin to complete a Master’s in Economics. He then spent two years at the Princeton Economics Department working with labor economists as a Senior Research Specialist. He is currently working on his PhD in the Political Economy and Government program at the Harvard Kennedy School (HKS), where he specializes in labor economics and American elections. 

Kevin mainly tutors economics, and can help students in general with social science classes (political science and government, history, psychology, sociology). He believes strongly in the benefits of the economic way of thinking in academic, professional, and even personal contexts, and is passionate about helping people learn and understand economic concepts in a fundamental way.  

In his free time, Kevin loves to read pop psychology books (especially anything about increasing productivity), blogging, and running (he’s run two marathons). He is also an avid self-tracker of his own time use and mood, and can tell you how many hours in the past four years he’s spent on homework (don’t ask).
