Guest Research Assistant

Multidimensional Demographic Modeling Research Group

Population and Just Societies


Nicholas Gailey joined IIASA in January 2018 to contribute to the World Population (POP) Program. His work primarily involves researching international migration, and the writing of related scientific publications and policy-oriented reports. In particular, he covers the emigration of highly-educated and skilled workers in Eastern Europe and Africa, and resulting implications for development.

Recent projects include work on a more nuanced view of the demographic transition, as well as possible demographic scenarios for EU member states, particularly in terms of the future labor force.

Mr. Gailey's educational background includes a Journalism MA from Stanford University and a Bachelor of Science degree from the University of California, Berkeley.
