Alice’s current work in the Lab is centred on projects related to the future of work and migration policies. She is particularly interested in experimenting with new ways of engaging with diverse stakeholders and in devising innovative approaches to make research relevant for policy-making. Alice holds a PhD in Sociology (University of Warwick) and an MPhil in Gender Studies (Central European University). Prior to joining the JRC in 2015, her research focused on analysing forced and family migration and immigrant integration in Europe. She benefited from the Alexander von Humboldt research fellowship at the Goethe University in Frankfurt am Main and was supported by the Fund for Scientific Research – FNRS of Belgium at the Université libre de Bruxelles. Besides carrying out extensive fieldwork in a number of European countries she also worked closely with non-governmental organisations in Central and Eastern Europe in areas of gender equality, social inclusion, youth and migrant rights.
