Guillaume Haemmerli is a doctoral candidate in geography at Université Laval (Québec). With the financial support of the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada (SSHRC), the doctoral research he is currently pursuing focuses on the economic, family and migration trajectories of Vietnamese refugees admitted in Canada since the late 1970s. His master’s research examined migration dynamics in Southeast Asia through a case study of the internal and international migration patterns, household life cycles and care needs (i.e. social and economic burdens) of Vietnamese households. Collaborating with Dr. Danièle Bélanger (Geography Department, Université Laval), and Dr. Charles Fleury (Sociology Department, Université Laval), Guillaume has also worked on various research projects regarding migration paths, status transitions as well as the economic integration of immigrants, temporary workers and refugees allowed in Canada. He completed his master’s degree in geographic sciences at the Department of Geography of Université Laval with the financial support from the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada (SSHRC) and the Fonds de Recherche du Québec – Société et Culture (FRQSC).
