Meggie Underwood
Chair

Meggie is thrilled to be returning to the Carroll Round as this year’s Chair. She is a senior in the School of Foreign Service studying International Economics. While she calls Chicagoland home, she has also lived in Poland, England, Germany, and Scotland, which has led to a vast interest in international affairs and economics. In addition to the Carroll Round, she actively competes in Model UN. When not found doing work, she enjoys watching trashy television shows on Netflix, exploring D.C., and indulging in desserts. Within the field of economics, she is particularly interested in gender equality, foreign direct investment, and the effects of trade barriers on welfare. She is very excited to welcome you all to Carroll Round XVIII!

Chair of Long-Term Development

Joshua is currently a junior in the School of Foreign Service majoring in International Political Economy and minoring in Japanese. Though born in Tokyo, Japan, and raised throughout the Asia-Pacific Region, he considers Hong Kong home. Having briefly dabbled in research, his interests are focused on economic transparency, currency pegs and remittance flows. If not working on a project for the Carroll Round's future, Joshua can be found up late at night working for The Hoya, Georgetown’s newspaper of record. Otherwise, he's probably writing, reading a bad novel, or sampling the latest, greatest sour gummy candy.
