Hunter DeMartino is an MBA student studying accounting at Manhattan College. His research combines qualitative and quantitative analysis to determine the role of an individual’s economic position in their decision making. Hunter uses knowledge from accounting to provide economic incentives for collaboration between individuals. After developing an interest in environmental science, he worked on several projects to test the water quality of the Hudson River, and measure the impact of nitrate runoff on local ponds. Hunter finished his undergraduate degree in accounting last spring at Manhattan College, and returned in the fall to begin his MBA.
