Emilio Zagheni is interested in the quantitative study of population dynamics. He has worked on a number of interdisciplinary projects, in areas like kinship microsimulation, population and environment, the social determinants of the spread of infectious diseases, and the use of digital records to study patterns of internal and international mobility and migrations. His recent work focuses on two main projects. The first one is about inferring relevant demographic information from non-representative samples, like the ones extracted from social media data. The second one is about the consequences of demographic change for intergenerational transfers and the care needs of families.
