Could you figure out what is '10 and '14?

Saha on her Harvard page (https://www.linkedin.com/in/sparsha-saha-a25aa653) writes: Education
Harvard University
Doctor of Philosophy (PhD)Government
2008 - 2013

If '10 means 2010 and '14 stands for 2014, they are the timeframe (2008-2013) but are still unclear what they actually mean.

*******************
It turns out, however, that American voters don’t penalize women who seem ambitious, according to a new paper published in the journal Political Behavior by Sparsha Saha, M.A. ’10 Ph.D. ’14, a political scientist and lecturer in Harvard’s Government Department. Despite the vast body of literature on voter behavior, Saha and her co-author, Ana Catalano Weeks, Ph.D. ’16, assistant professor at the University of Bath, say it’s the first study of voter perceptions of candidate ambition.

@oristarA,
abbreviations for the years she got her degrees. the 20 is assumed.

’10 Ph.D. ’14, ==>>> 2010 Ph.D. 2014 ===>>> that she started to learn as Ph.D. student at 2010 and got her Ph.D. degree at 2014 ==>>> it is not consistent with her self-introduction on her Harvard page, there the timefram is 2008 - 2013.

@oristarA,
she was probably in a a 5 year pHD program that tartdin 2008. Many U's confer an MA if the student bailed . Her pHD was conferred on 2014, thats all. She was also conferred an MS in 2010.

Many of the Ivys; or other elites (like Stanford ) will do that

@oristarA,
Notice the apostrophes before the 10 and the 14/. that is an indication that they are to be read as years, not as plain numerals. there were two degrees awarded, an MA IN 201o and a doctorate in 2014. Doctorates may take several (or many) years to research, prepare and write, not necessarily while still in a formal program. You can also often get a masters as well as a doctorate.
