Pilar Rioseco joined the Institute in July 2016 and works on the Building a New Life in Australia: the longitudinal study of humanitarian migrants project, examining the settlement experiences of recently arrived humanitarian migrants.

Pilar previously worked as a researcher on the Social Networks and Ageing Project (SNAP) at the School of Demography, The Australian National University, and in the Flinders Centre for Ageing Research, Flinders University. Her work on these projects included investigating associations between social networks and successful ageing. 

Pilar completed her PhD in Social Research at The Australian National University. Her research examined the role of social connectedness in the process of retirement in Australia using data from SNAP and the Household Income and Labour Dynamics in Australia (HILDA). Pilar has a particular interest in longitudinal analysis of survey data.
