Student Departmental Advisers - 2015/16:

Student departmental advisers (SDAs) are seniors who serve as a resource for all current students, especially new students, who want to talk to a knowledgeable and experienced upper class student about courses and registration. They supplement the information and advice available through faculty advisers and published materials, and refer students to the proper office or department when needed.

Reed Cammarota

I am a senior Economics major from Neenah, WI. At Carleton, I have taken classes on Game Theory, Welfare Economics, Money & Banking, and Financial Crises, as well as both intro classes and all three upper level classes. Following my sophomore year, I travelled abroad on Carleton's Economics in Cambridge program and visited France, England, Scotland, and Italy. Additionally, I have served the department as a microeconomics prefect for 3 terms. While I am an economics major, I also have taken several math courses and have a strong interest in statistics, probability, and understand the importance of data analysis in the world of economics. This past winter and summer, I interned as a data analyst for an ad agency in Minneapolis. I am also a member of the Carleton soccer team and an all around sports enthusiast. You can hear me banter about hot sports topics once a week on Carleton's KRLX Radio. If you have any questions about economics classes, math classes, the Cambridge Program, internship opportunities, or if you just want to talk about sports, don't hesitate to contact me at

Lindsey Main

I am senior Economics major from Colorado. I’ve taken economics courses since my first term at Carleton and have taken Principles of Macroeconomics, Welfare Economics, Water & Western Economic Development, Entrepreneurship, Innovation & Economic Performance, Money & Banking, Economics of Sports, Investment Finance, and all three 300-level core courses. Some of my favorite things to do at Carleton include singing with my a cappella group Exit 69, skiing with the alpine ski club, and playing lacrosse. I work in the Economics department as an office assistant and am a photography TA. This past summer, I interned as an investment banking summer analyst at Piper Jaffray in Minneapolis and will be returning full time next year. I am happy to answer any questions about classes, student organizations, campus jobs, internships, or anything else. Please feel free to email me at

During my time here, I’ve taken both principles courses, History of Economic Thought, Microeconomics of Development, Natural Resource Economics, and all three 300-levels. I am also a prefect for the economics dept. I had a variety of experiences in my breaks such as interning as an equity analyst, doing development research in Ethiopia and working at the United Nations Food and Agriculture Organization. If you have questions about classes, internships, going abroad, opportunities for economics majors, or anything in general, feel free to contact me at

Erika Tyagi

I am a senior Economics and Political Science/International Relations major from Mequon, WI. I work in the Career Center and as a prefect for the Political Science department. In addition to the three core classes in the Economics department, I have taken Economics of the European Union and The History of Economic Ideas. My sophomore year, I went abroad on a Carleton program to Edinburgh and Budapest where I studied topics related to European identity and nationalism. I have interned with a non-profit political research organization, a business consulting group, and a global asset management firm.
