photoI am currently working as a Research and Teaching assistant at the Faculty of Law and Political Sciences of the University of Lille.

My research interests are related to migration, foreign direct investment, trade and public policies.

I did my Ph.D. in economics within the laboratory LEM-CNRS (UMR 9221) at the University of Lille, under the supervision of Professor Hubert JAYET. During my Ph.D., I did two visiting periods abroad, at the University La Sapienza of Rome and at the University Aldo Moro of Bari.

My Ph.D. thesis is entitled: Theory and empirical evidence on contemporary international migration. In this thesis, I tackle the following research questions: What determines migration? Do exporting and multinational firms impact migration decisions? Conversely, to what extent do migrants foster trade and foreign direct investment (FDI)? Overall, I analyse how the growing integration of economies impacts migration dynamics, the migration-FDI nexus and the migration-trade nexus.

I detail my research projects and my teaching experience in the next pages of this website. To know more about my profile, you can download my CV here (French CV here). To contact me: lea.marchal-2[at]univ-lille2.fr
