Finja Krüger completed a Bachelor’s degree in International Business at the Copenhagen Business School and the Chinese University of Hong Kong as well as a Master’s degree in Economics at the University of Kiel. As part of the research center "Poverty reduction, equity and development", she works on the ITFLOWS project, which is funded by the European Union as part of their Horizon 2020 strategy. The project aims at developing a forecasting model, which accurately predicts migration flows. Different types of data sources such as semantic information are incorporated. In order to anticipate negative developments in citizens' attitudes towards migration, additional research on economic and social integration conditions is conducted.
