Dr. Boland is postdoctoral researcher at Radboud University's Centre for Migration Law, where her principal research line as part of the Radboud University Network on Migrant Inclusion (RUNOMI) is examining labor integration and digitalization in Europe from a gender and intersectional perspective (primarily in Spain and the Netherlands). She also is part of the coordinating team of the EU Horizon project Global Strategy for Skills, Migration and Development. Previously, at the Autonomous University of Barcelona, she interim coordinated the EU Horizon2020 ITFLOWS (IT Tools and Methods for Managing Migration Flows) project, in addition to research duties relating to mixed migration flows to Europe since the start of the project. She also coordinated “Gendered crimmigration discourse and practices: Catalan case and multilevel governance potential," funded by the Institut Català Internacional per la Pau, and engaged in the project, "Crimmigration in Europe: Compounded Dilution of Asylum-seekers’ and Women’s Human Rights," as a 2021-2022 re:constitution Fellow (a Forum Transregionale Studien and Democracy Reporting International program funded by Stiftung Mercator). Earlier research addressed identity construction among youth of migrant origin, as well as aspirational outcomes and experiences of discrimination, with a particular focus on European Muslim youth. Current research interests include EU refugee and migration flows and integration within broader international migration studies and diversity management. Finally, she is associated researcher at the Autonomous University of Barcelona EUGOV Research Group.
