Sania Khan is a Senior Economist at the US Bureau of Labor Statistics where she oversees the nation's largest data collection program and is responsible for developing optimization insights using data, and leading initiatives, using those insights, to drive continuous innovative improvement. She is also the author of the forthcoming book, 'Think Like an Economist,' which brings together core economic ideas and applies to the most important areas of one's life - financial wellness, personal development, and professional advancement.
