ROLE IN THE PROJECT:
Daniela has applied quantitative methods to estimate irregular migration at different spatial contexts
Daniela is Senior Research Associate at the Toronto Metropolitan University, CERC Migration and Integration programme. She earned her PhD in Demography from the Université de Montréal and specializes in migration and integration policy. She studied economics, statistics, law, and political sciences at the University of Pisa. Daniela has adopted demographic methods and econometric approaches to analyze population changes and assess the impact of migration. She has applied quantitative methods to derive irregular and out-of-status migrant populations, detecting the past trends and projecting future scenarios under policy assumptions. Most of her work has taken a comparative perspective, looking across geographic regions at a territorial scale ranging from national to high-spatial resolutions. Prior to join CERC, Daniela worked with national institutions and European bodies, such as the Joint Research Centre, investigating migration dynamics and contributing to evidence-based policy decisions.
