"My Stanford Political Science major formed the foundation for my passion for public service and it provided me the framework to navigate public policy. As a student I was privileged to attend Stanford-in-Washington and to learn from such Political Science luminaries as Professors David Brady and John Ferejohn. My public policy career has been shaped and inspired by my time as a Stanford Poli Sci undergraduate. I consider myself incredibly lucky to have graduated with these Stanford experiences."

As Deputy Director of the Office of Credit Ratings, Smeeta is a Senior Officer at the SEC who leads the examination, international supervision, and enforcement of credit rating agencies and the industry as a whole.
