About Silvia

Hi! Thanks for visiting my personal page.

I am a postdoctoral fellow at the Institute of Economics and Social Research (IRES) of UCLouvain. Prior to this, I worked as a postdoctoral researcher at the Luxembourg Institute of Socio-Economic Research (LISER). I obtained my PhD in Economics at the University of Luxembourg in November 2022.

During my PhD, my research centered on migration economics under the guidance of Professor Michel Beine. Currently, I conduct research in both migration and development economics, and I am collaborating with Jean-François Maystadt and Luisito Bertinelli on the project ``Road to Sustainable Development in SSA’'.

Research interests:

  • Migration Economics.
  • Applied econometrics, methods for causal inference.
  • Spatial data.
  • Natural language processing.
  • Asylum migration.
  • Migration policies in Europe.
