Samrudha Surana

I'm a researcher who looks at the world through the frames of economics.

Beginning in August 2024, I'll be pursuing a PhD in Economics at George Mason University, as a Graduate Fellow with the F. A. Hayek Program in Philosophy, Politics, and Economics at the Mercatus Center.

My research interests revolve around political economy, economic history, and the philosophical underpinnings of a free society. I'm passionate about understanding the unseen effects of policies and how they shape the functioning of a free society.

Currently, I work with the Indian Political Economy team at the Mercatus Center, led by Dr. Shruti Rajagopalan. I am also a Prometheus Fellow with Students for Liberty. 

I am always up for discussing economics, and often found arguing that "veg" biryani does exist.

You can find my writings on Substack here. I also sell custom-designed t-shirts here. Buy some to create double thank you moments :)
