Kadeem Noray

Resident Tutor
Tutor in: Economics, Pre-Career, Public Service

Hello Kirkland House! My name is Kadeem and I am excited to get to be a part of the Kirkland community. I’m a PhD Candidate in Public Policy (Economics Track) at the Harvard Kennedy School, where my research focuses on labor economics and economics of education. I grew up primarily in New Jersey, but have lived in Michigan and Montana as well. When I am not behind a computer analyzing data, I am usually playing basketball, reading philosophy, writing stand-up jokes, or watching TV shows / movies with my wife Savannah (who is also a resident tutor at Kirkland). Please feel free to contact me if you need anything or if you just want to get to chat!... Read more about Kadeem Noray

Savannah Noray

Resident Tutor
Tutor in: Econ, Public Service, CARE

Hi Kirkland! My name is Savannah, and I'm excited to be a new tutor in Kirkland this year. I am a third year Public Policy PhD student with fields in labor economics and international trade. My research focuses on labor market issues related to immigration and how women navigate having a career and a family. I grew up in a military family, so I have lived in California, Texas, Arizona, Pennsylvania, and Japan. Outside of my research, I most enjoy watching good TV/movies, googling pictures of beautiful fashion/interior design, and having deep conversations over a cup of coffee. Looking forward to a wonderful year!

Hi Kirkland! My name is Channing (she/her/hers) and I'm a PhD candidate in Organizational Behavior, a joint program between Harvard Business School and the Department of Sociology. My research focuses on inequality--particularly gender and race--within organizations and labor markets. I'm an alum of the College and previously worked in the tech and ed tech industries. At Kirkland, I advise on Fellowships and Public Service. I'm also happy to chat current events, bingeworthy shows, yummy eats, good reads, and podcasts.
