Hi! My name is Nathan Nouri and I'm a sophomore at Duke studying economics. It was actually my passion for economics that led me to joining the Going to Mars Research Team. I enjoy examining social problems through the lens of the incentives at play, and working through our research modules and helping to write our paper on state-to-state conflict on Mars really opened my horizons to how social problems are not constrained to Earth -- they simply follow wherever we go. I hope to continue investigating the economics of both Mars and of space generally, as there are a multitude of burgeoning industries and fields of study relevant to my interests.
