Héctor Reyes, from Bayamón, Puerto Rico, is pursuing a JD at Stanford Law School and a PhD in economics at Stanford School of Humanities and Sciences. He completed a bachelor of science in economics and mathematics at the University of Southern California (USC). Hector plans to serve and advocate for Puerto Rico by becoming a university professor, economic adviser, and think tank leader on the island. He developed an early interest in economics after witnessing his compatriots struggle to overcome Puerto Rico’s decade-long recession. Hector began his college career at Valparaiso University as a student-athlete on the track and field team, and transferred to USC in the fall of 2017. There, he served as a lab director managing a team of 20 research assistants at the Lab on Non-Democratic Politics in the USC Dornsife School of International Relations. Upon graduation, he became a fellow of the PhD Excellence Initiative at New York University.
