Evelyn Ersanilli is a Senior Researcher in Political Science.

Her research examines immigrant integration in Europe - in particular citizenship, identity and family - and migration policy development - with a focus on low skilled migrants. In 2017 she was awarded an ERC Starting Grant for the RIGHTS project (2018-2023) which examines how origin countries influence the rights of their low skilled migrant workers abroad.

Her teaching  interests are research methods and statistics.
