Graduate Student Fellow

Ingmar is a Ph.D. student in the Department of Political Science at UC Santa Barbara. He researches how international institutions shape the dynamics of domestic and international migration caused by conflict and climate change. He focuses particularly on the role that UN bodies play in changing the calculus of migration decisions such as the capacity of these institutions to affect inter-ethnic trust and provide access to public goods. In a separate research agenda, Ingmar researches the effects of sex-ratio imbalances on the military. Aside from his substantive interest in issues around migration, demography, climate change, and political science, he is interested in survey research and quantitative methods. Prior to starting his Ph.D., he was a Teach First Deutschland fellow teaching math and English. Ingmar holds a B.A. in politics, philosophy, and economics from University College Maastricht and an M.A. in international relations from Jacobs University.
