Adhip Chaudhuri, Georgetown faculty member

Adhip Chaudhuri, an assistant economics professor at Georgetown University, died Jan. 13 at Capital Caring Hospice in Arlington. He was 62.

The cause was complications from lung cancer, said his former wife, Margaret McBride.

Dr. Chaudhuri, a Vienna resident, taught at Georgetown from 1979 until his retirement in 2013.

During his career, he lectured in Austria, Vietnam and Qatar. His writings on international trade, finance and social welfare appeared in academic journals such as Theory and Decision as well as Social Choice and Welfare.

Adhip Chaudhuri was a native of Ghazipur, India, and was a 1970 graduate of St. Stephen’s College at the University of Delhi in India. He received a master’s degree in economics from the Delhi School of Economics in 1971 and a doctoral degree in economics from Columbia University in 1980.

His first two marriages, to Una Baljit Singh and Margaret McBride, ended in divorce. Survivors include his wife of 13 years, Joanne Kinney Smyth of Vienna; two children from his second marriage, Maya Chaudhuri of Atlanta and Neal Chaudhuri of Washington; a sister; and a brother.
