Curriculum Vitae:
Professional Summary:

I earned my PhD in Demography (2005) from the University of Rome “La Sapienza” with a thesis on the determinants of international migration. Before joining the University of the South Pacific as Senior Lecturer and Coordinator of the Population programme I had been working for six years as Research Officer at the Centre on Migration, Policy and Society (University of Oxford). My primary research expertise lies in the field of migration and mobility, and its intersections with labour market, ageing and development issues. My research papers also addressed the collection and assessment of migration data and migration and integration policies. I am currently principal investigator in the research project “Patterns of Mobility and Development in Pacific Island States: An Integrated Analysis”, which deploys a combination of quantitative and qualitative methods to provide a better understanding of the links between urbanization, intra-regional movements and international migration in Fiji, Samoa and Vanuatu.
