Meet an Ambassador: Alex Houser

Posted on

This week we’re introducing one of our new Graduate College Ambassadors, Alex Houser!

Alex will be starting his 5th year as a PhD student in the fall, in the discipline of Economics. He describes himself as a business geek, and is currently interning with the Consumer Analytics function of PNC, where he will remain until August 27th. Academically, much of his research focuses on statistics, and specifically producing new statistical procedures which are well suited towards economic data.

Business remains one of his main hobbies, and he has enjoyed coordinating with a group of students to run and maintain the Campus Beet weekly vegetarian lunch in the Wesley foundation, a small but profitable organization lunch (check out a WMU News article about this student-led initiative here). Alex serves as one of two bread bakers for the organization.
