My work focuses on discrimination- and policy-driven mechanisms that affect immigrants' labour market integration. Also, I work on policy effects in the context of
international migration. Inequality and discrimination are still pressing issues in our society that have to be dealt with. With my research, I hope to contribute to this endeavour.
