Maria Schiller is an Assistant Professor of Public policy, Migration and Diversity at the Erasmus University Rotterdam. Her work is motivated by the desire to understand and capture the dynamics of migration and diversity, with a particular focus on Europe. In her research she investigates policy implementation, street-level bureaucracy and governance networks, and she often takes a comparative approach. Previously, she was a Senior Resarch Fellow at the Max Planck Institute for the Study of Religious and Ethnic Diversity in Göttingen, a Substitute Assistant Professor at the University of Tübingen, a Visiting Lecturer at the University of Kent and a Marie Skoldowska Curie Fellow at the University of Vienna. She holds a PhD in Migration Studies (2014) from the University of Kent.
