Hi, I'm Smiti (स्मिति; may sound similar to "pithy" with an s). I'm 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 a part of 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.
