RESEARCH AND TEACHING INTERESTS:

My main research interest has been in the field of international migration. Because of globalization, there has been a growing number of people who migrate to other countries for study or employment. I am currently conducting research on the impact of highly-skilled migration, particularly the multiple migrations of professionals and students.
