She graduated with a Master’s in Public Policy and Human Development from Maastricht Graduate School of Governance in 2011 with a specialization in Migration Studies. Katrin’s Master’s thesis examined the intentions of Chinese and Indian students in the Netherlands to return to their home country after graduating. Prior to that, Katrin completed a Diplom in Economics (2003-2008) at the University of Trier in Germany. Since 2010, she has been working as a researcher on a variety of projects in the field of migration using both quantiative and qualitative methods. Among these were evaluations of programmes and policies, migration profiles and mappings as well as extensive literature reviews. Katrin’s main research interests are in migration and development, specifically labour migration, migrants’ occupational choices and the interlinkages of migration and private sector development.
