OnPoint is pleased to welcome the newest member to our team, Ben Koos. Ben recently earned a M.S. in Economics from Cal Poly San Luis Obispo, where he studied the complementary effect of product market reforms and intellectual property rights on innovation intensity. While pursuing his undergraduate studies, Ben modeled the deforestation rates of rain forests in Cameroon and the economic impact of solar energy versus coal or natural gas in Arizona. He also volunteered for AIESEC, a global non-profit that facilitates international internships for college students. Ben’s responsibilities within the organization were largely oriented around helping the San Luis Obispo chapter manage its budget. He is particularly excited to conduct research related to antitrust, intellectual property and environmental damages cases. In his spare time, Ben enjoys reading, hiking and practicing martial arts.
