Domiziana is a DPhil Candidate in Migration Studies and Clarendon Scholar investigating how families shape and are shaped by onward migration. Her doctoral research focuses on the experiences of onward Colombian families who moved from Spain to London.

Between June 2020 and June 2021, Domiziana co-led the project “Enhancing the impact of migration research with Latin Americans in London”, which sought to understand the impact of Brexit and COVID-19 on London’s Latin American migrants by building links with the community through knowledge exchange and engagement activities. The findings were published in the form of an executive summary geared towards the general public and available here.

In 2020, she worked as a research consultant for the project ‘Promoting Inclusion to Combat Early School Leaving’ co-funded by the Erasmus+ Programme of the European Union and promoting inclusive intercultural pedagogies for student engagement by bringing together researchers and teachers from schools from four EU countries (Italy, Spain, Portugal, and Croatia).

As of September 2020, Domiziana was appointed convener of the interdisciplinary Oxford Migration and Mobility Network which draws together researchers of migration and mobility from across the University of Oxford. From 2019 to 2021, she served as editor and then co-editor-in-chief of the Oxford Monitor of Forced Migration Journal.

Domiziana completed her MPhil in Sociology at the University of Cambridge in July 2019 with a Gates Cambridge Scholarship. Prior to moving to the UK, she completed her BA in Liberal Arts and Science at Amsterdam University College, where she ventured to understand the educational experiences and the peer culture of Moroccan-Dutch youth in Amsterdam and Rotterdam.
