Matt Hsieh, Class of 2006

"I am a Foreign Service Officer with the Department of State, and I currently work at the United States Embassy in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia.  I am part of the US Mission to the African Union, and I focus on our political and economic relations with the African Union and other African member states.  As an economics major, I focused on macroeconomics and took many classes at the CDE, which help me better understand how economics play a role in the many complex policies we are involved in."
