Paul Johnston

Undergraduate Research Fellow


Paul is an undergraduate Economics student set to graduate in Spring 2024.

He joined the CGO in Fall 2022 to contribute to environmental research. He focuses particularly on nuclear energy supply constraints.

He values the golden rule—treating others as one would like to be treated—and believes its practice can create a harmonious world.

After graduation, Paul intends to pursue a Ph.D. in Finance to extend his expertise and make impactful contributions in both academia and the financial industry.

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.
