Sydney Beutler

Graduate Research Fellow


Sydney Beutler is a Graduate Research Fellow at the Center for Growth and Opportunity at Utah State University. She is studying Data Analytics, with an expected graduation date in May 2024, and is currently learning R, Python, and SQL. Her research within the CGO focuses on state tax policy analytics. She joined the organization because she loves writing and wants research exposure. It’s an opportunity to conduct research with USU professors and faculty.

If given a chance to share one idea with the world, Sydney would emphasize the power of laughter. It improves our ability to learn and remember information. We should remember to have fun in all aspects of our life because it can actually be beneficial to our education.

Following her graduation, Sydney is planning to work in financial analysis or economic research.

About Student Research Fellowships

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, graduate 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.
