Kyle Steinicke

Former Undergraduate Research Fellow


Kyle graduated with an undergraduate degree in Statistics in Spring 2023.

He joined the CGO in Fall 2021 to research tech-related topics. Kyle wanted to improve his research, writing, and economic thinking skills, and be part of a group that encourages deep, meaningful discussions. His work included studying the James Webb Space Telescope’s budget and looking into AI regulation.

If Kyle could share one important fact, he’d highlight the idea of negative externalities. He thinks many environmental, economic, and political problems happen because prices don’t include these external costs, leading to wrong incentives.

After finishing his bachelor’s degree, Kyle is ready to begin his career. He aims to become a software developer, using his tech skills to help create new projects and solutions.

About Student Research Fellowships

Undergraduate Research Fellows at the Center for Growth and Opportunity work alongside CGO’s research staff and a worldwide network of scholars. Our fellows are integral components to the Center’s research process.

During their fellowships, undergraduate students have the opportunity to write independently as well as contribute to ongoing research. Students are guided through the research process as they help answer questions related to technology and innovation, environmental stewardship, immigration, and tax policy. CGO fellows are encouraged to share their research at academic conferences, poster exhibitions, and symposiums. Our fellows also work with the Center’s outreach team to get their research to the right people, at the right time in order to make real changes in the world.
