Daniel Dias

Senior economist | Federal Reserve Board

What Daniel Dias misses most about campus: the Altgeld bells tower, "and how it helped me find David Kinley Hall when I had just arrived in Champaign-Urbana."

What the former assistant professor of economics doesn't miss one bit about living here from 2010 to 2015: the winter weather.

"One thing that UIUC reminds me of is the pain on my neck muscles due to raising my shoulders so much because of the cold," says the senior economist at the Federal Reserve Board.
