Naila Shofia

Bocconi University


I am a PhD candidate at Bocconi University, Milan. Originally from Kudus, Indonesia, in the past 10 years, I have been living in 5 different cities in 5 different countries, mainly for study and work.

I received a bachelor degree in Economics from University of Indonesia, and master degrees in Public Policy from Lee Kuan Yew School of Public Policy (LKYSPP) and The London School of Economics and Political Science (LSE).

I enjoy research and travelling. My current research interest is about how culture and religion influence development and democracy. My paper is recently published at Demography (IF=2.572), focusing on female politicians and how they impact population health. Part of my current research has also received a generous funding from the Roberto Franceschi Foundation. You can see my current research here and my updated cv here.
