Eva Dziadula is an associate professor of the practice in economics who studies migration choices and immigrant assimilation. Her work focuses on how people acquire citizenship, and her research encompasses labor economics, health economics, and development economics, as well as economic demography.
She is currently working on a project that examines the marital status and history of the foreign-born in the United States and how those factors relate to become a naturalized US citizen. Dziadula, a native of the former Czechoslovakia (now the Czech Republic), is also studying the extent of cultural assimilation by looking at preferences for male offspring among Asian immigrants.
Dziadula is part of a Notre Dame Initiative for Global Development research team studying the impact of programs in Nepal aimed at reducing child labor. She previously taught at Lake Forest College, the University of Illinois at Chicago, and the Johns Hopkins Center for Talented Youth, where she received an award for teaching excellence.
Dziadula earned a BA from Lake Forest College and an MA and PhD from the University of Illinois at Chicago.
