In parallel to her expertise in the migration and interethnic field, Prof. Francesca Poglia Mileti diversified her scientific profile, gaining recognition in other research topics, such as gender, youth, and economy. Since 2012, Prof. Poglia Mileti has specialized in the field of immigration, gender and sexual health, combining two historically separate domains of research: sexuality and migration. The research group she created (GREMISS) is a rare team working in this field in Switzerland.
