Daniela Ghio

(Toronto Metropolitan University)

Daniela Ghio investigates population dynamics and contributes to evidence-based policy decisions. She earned her PhD in Demography from the Université de Montréal and specializes in migration and integration policy. She studied economics, statistics, law, and political sciences at the University of Pisa. Daniela adopts demographic methods and econometric approaches to analyze the social and human capital determinants of migration and assess the impacts of spatial patterns on population dynamics. Most of her work has taken a comparative perspective, looking across geographic regions at a scale ranging from global to high-spatial resolutions, as well as from developing to developed countries. She applies micro-macro projection models to detect the long-term effects of the current population trends, exploring future demographic challenges and scenarios on population vulnerability to environmental and climate risks.
