Remarkable Women, Powerful Stories: Laura Ballerini

Laura Ballerini developed a strong interest in economics and statistics while earning her bachelor’s degree. She applied for a Master of Philosophy at the University of Oxford after an exchange semester in Shanghai, which further fueled her interest in development economics.
