Miguel Colell

To prepare for a career in economics, Miguel traveled beyond the country’s borders.

Miguel went to Guatemala the summer of his sophomore year to conduct a directed study with Matthew Krystal, associate professor of anthropology. He helped produce five documentary films related to economic anthropology. He traveled to Brazil the following year, researching the economic impact of soccer’s 2014 World Cup.
