Ignacio is a PhD candidate at UPF and part of DemoSoc research group. He is working on immigrants’ labour market integration and determinants of migration in Latin American countries, with Professor Pau Baizán as his supervisor. Ignacio’s first paper analyzes the assimilation model by comparing social stratification of immigrants versus natives in the Chilean context, using household survey data from years 2013 to 2017. His second and third papers deal with determinants of Colombian intraregional and extraregional migration, using event history analysis and agent based models.

Before joining the PhD program, Ignacio worked at UN-ECLAC in different issues related to social development. His research interests are social development and protection, migration, and quantitative methods. Ignacio holds a Master in Demography from Stockholm University, a Master in Migration Studies from UPF, and a degree in Sociology from University of Chile. Linkedin
