In my research, I leverage inferential tools from public policy, economics, and political science to credibly identify causal effects of immigration policies on political behavior of natives, economic integration of newcomers, and decision-making of bureaucrats. I am also interested in how ethnic identity conditions native reactions to immigration, and how demographic contexts of reception affect sense of belonging among refugees.
