Christian Keith is a Master in Public Affairs Candidate in the School of Public and International Affairs focusing on economics and public policy. He was born and raised in Atlanta, Georgia. He went to Howard University where he majored in economics and political science and completed a thesis focused on economic development studying Chinese income inequality as a case study.
This has developed an interest for him in how to use economic research to help community development initiatives domestically and abroad. After graduation he worked at a community development organization in Atlanta and before coming to Princeton was an intern with the Center on Budget and Policy Priorities on the federal fiscal working on tax and budget issues. Both roles have helped him to learn effective ways to support low to moderate income families using research and practice methods.
