Scholar Profile

Isabel Musselman



Isabel graduated with honors from Harvard with a degree in Psychology and a minor in Economics. After spending a summer in college working for Alpine Investors as an Investing Analyst in San Francisco, she received a full time offer and began working as an Investment Professional for the private equity firm after her graduation in 2023. She tremendously enjoys the work environment as well as the constant thinking of the work itself.

While in college, Isabel studied abroad in Perugia, Italy, where she participated in a Food Studies program and improved her Italian. Having worked previously for the restaurant recommendation app Beli, this program also fed her personal interests in all things food.

At Harvard, Isabel was particularly interested in understanding the how and why of individual motivation. She was particularly interested in understanding how technology has affected our sense of altruism and if it has created a broad sense of obligatory reciprocity. Aside from her academic work, Isabel was a leader for the First-Year Outdoor Program, spearheaded backpacking trips for incoming First-Year students, and she was captain of the Women’s Frisbee team, Quasar.
