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 public policymaking on migration and diversity, with a focus on Europe, often comparing across countries and cities. In her research she is interested in the practices and networks involved in governing migration-related diversity and she investigates the role of officials, civil society and private actors therein. 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 Sklodowska-Curie Fellow at the University of Vienna. She holds a PhD in Migration Studies (2014) from the University of Kent.
