Hi, I'm Smiti (स्मिति). I'm a first-year student in the Joint PhD program in Public Policy and Economics at Duke University, and my research interests lie broadly in development, applied microeconomics, social policy, gender, and health. I previously earned an MS in Computer Science and a Minor in Public Policy from UNC Chapel Hill, where I was an RA for two years in the Visual Analysis and Communication Lab (VACLab) led by Dr. David Gotz. I studied Computer Science (BS) and Mathematical Statistics (BA) at Wake Forest University, where I was lucky to know many generous people and especially Dr. Samuel Cho. My email address is firstname.lastname@example.org.
