Smrithi Prasad completed her Ph.D. from the University of Oregon in Social and Personality Psychology. Prior to that, she earned her B.S. in Psychology and M.S. in Management at the National University of Singapore (NUS). Her primary research examines how events in our social environment – like acute social stressors and competitive outcomes – may modulate the influence of biological and psychological processes in motivating social and economic decision-making behaviors. Her questions are informed by theories and methods from social psychology and behavioral endocrinology using both laboratory paradigms and naturalistic field methodologies.
