Carlos Vargas-Silva is Director of the Centre on Migration, Policy and Society (COMPAS) and Associate Professor at the University of Oxford. He is also the Director of the Doctoral Programme in Migration Studies and a member of Kellogg College. Carlos is co-founder and current Editor-in-Chief of the journal Migration Studies. He is Principal Investigator of a project that explores the social impacts of refugee resettlement in the United States and is the Oxford leader for the MIGNEX project, a large initiative on migration and development. His research focuses on the interaction of migration, including forced migration, with labour markets and public services in migrant sending and receiving countries. Carlos teaches in the MSc in Migration Studies at Oxford. He also supervises doctoral students interested in migration (in intersection with labour markets, development, and/or public policy) and welcomes new potential DPhil students interested in these areas. He also works with a vibrant group of post-doctoral fellows and is available for collaboration with early career researchers who want to consolidate their research in these topics.
