Nella Geurts is assistant professor and studies the in- and exclusion of migrants and their experiences in Western Europe. Currently, she is exploring the role of family and religiosity among Syrian women's social inclusion in the Netherlands and is studying the political inclusion of various migrant groups in Western Europe. Previously, she wrote her dissertation about the integration paradox among migrants, in which she used a mixed methods design to understand why those with a higher socio-economic position experienced a lower sense of belonging to their residence country. In her research, Nella prefers using and combining various methods such as analyzing survey data and in-depth interviews.

In addition, Nella is an editor of Mens & Maatschappij.
