Science and Technology
Science and technology play vital roles in understanding and addressing the challenges we face as a nation. We have the potential to become global leaders in environmental stewardship and infrastructure innovation.
I support scientific research and believe our policy decisions should be evidence-based and data-driven. I also believe the federal government should encourage STEM education in schools to prepare a young, diverse workforce to tackle tomorrow’s challenges.
Technology also coincides with my work on Financial Services. As monetary policy and banking evolve, I want to ensure innovation is equitable while also protecting consumers from tech giants' possible overreach.
