Prior to Princeton, Karlin spent five years working in international economic policy. Throughout the MPA, she hopes to further her interest in international economics and emerging markets, while broadening her passion for public service to include domestic economic issues. Karlin started her career in the inaugural class of the U.S. Treasury Department’s International Affairs Fellow program, where she worked in the Middle East office covering North African economies. Following Treasury, she managed an international database for a consulting firm, which sharpened her data analysis and management. Immediately before Princeton, she was a senior analyst at the Federal Reserve Bank of New York and worked on teams that coordinate and execute the bank’s international analytical work and engagement. This summer, she completed an internship with the Self-Help Credit Union. Karlin graduated Phi Beta Kappa from Vassar College, with a bachelor’s degree in economics and minor in Arabic. Her hobbies include ballet, fishing, and spending time outside. Born and raised on the south side of Chicago, she is loyal to deep dish pizza, Lake Michigan, and the White Sox.
