Kim Caarls

I‘m a postdoctoral researcher at the Netherlands Interdisciplinary Demographic Institute (NIDI). For my PhD dissertation, I investigated how Ghanaian families form, transform and possibly dissolve in the context of international migration. I have ample experience with complex survey designs and advanced statistical methods. At NIDI, I continue to study the effects of international migration on family life with the FaMiLife project. In line with this project, I emphasize the need for an origin and destination perspective in order to fully understand the functioning of family life across borders.
