AAB - Zach Bleemer

Zach Bleemer, BYFI ’08, studies young person decision-making as a senior research analyst at the Federal Reserve Bank of New York’s Microeconomic Data Center. His interest in decision theory has led him from empirical examinations of unemployment insurance and perceived college costs to statistical models of biblical translation and 18th century European bookbinding. As a Schupf Scholar at Amherst College—from which he graduated with degrees in economics, philosophy, and mathematics in 2013—Zach travelled to 21 countries studying aesthetic philosophy and the experience of beauty. At Amherst, he was Hillel president and a columnist for the Amherst Student. Zach lives in the worlds of contemporary fiction and film, though presently he is blogging about neither, and enjoys board games and art museums.
