Anjelika Deogirikar

Anjelika Deogirikar has spent over a decade working in both the private, public, and nonprofit sectors. Most recently, she was the ORGANIZE Innovator in Residence at the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services.

Hailing from the Silicon Valley, Anjelika and her high school senior class were beta testers for the Palm VII, which, at the time, was the first wireless personal digital assistant. Her feedback to 3Com was to lose the antenna and have a color screen. Currently, she’s back to her high school teaching a social impact class.

Anjelika graduated from Carnegie Mellon University with a BS in Biological Sciences and minor in Chemistry, and from Georgetown University with a Master of Public Policy. Her Master Thesis “The Impact of Open Government on Innovation: Does Government Transparency Drive Innovation?” is available open access online.
