Eva is Associate Professor (Professora Agregada) in the Department of Political Science and Public Law. She holds degrees in Anthropology and Political Science from Copenhagen University and a PhD in Politics from University of Oxford/ St. Antony’s College.


Eva’s research interests include the politics of migration in both receiving and sending countries, migrant’s transnational networks, practices and forms of political participation. She has been the lead researcher and participated in a range of project funded at the international, European or national level. From 2018-2023 she will be the IP of an ERC Consolidator Grant (726406) Migration and Democratic Diffusion: the Impact of Migration on Democratic Practices and Processes in Countries of Origin (MIGRADEMO), which will examine the impact of international migration on migrant countries of origin through both large scale surveys and in-depth fieldwork.


Eva welcomes applications from PhD students within her research areas of interest including comparative politics, development and democratization, migration policies and migrant political incorporation, transnational relations and politics.
