Thanks for checking out this blog dedicated to researching and understanding the phenomenon of traveling and living abroad in global cities.
I’ve been an urban expat myself since I left the United States in early 2006, so while my “official” research on this phenomenon started during my Master’s Program in International Migration Policy at the University of Buenos Aires, I’ve been observing and analyzing this subject for years.
Through my research I attempt to answer questions about the causes, motivation, characteristics, patterns, implications and consequences of these currents of urban expats in the hopes that this research could shed light on the realities of our contemporary urbanized transglobal society, today and in the future.

very interesting page. I love studying migration and human geography. Your page is very cool and I look forward to reading more!
Hi! This is sort of crazy: my name is also Emily Miller, and I am passionate about studying migration. I’m at college in New York City right now, but hope to get a masters in International Migration/ Public Policy one day. I would LOVE to talk to you more about your experiences! I saw you’ve been to Marrakesh- I spent a year living in Rabat, Morocco.
Hi Emily! Feel free to ask me any questions! I loved Morocco….that must have been quite a year 🙂
Hi Emily ! Is there any chance to read your thesis ? I´m psychologist and graduated in UBA too. Interested in the subject because the usual way of inmigration is from poorer countries to richer ones, and that is not the case of americans living here. Thanks in advance and have a happy life here. Gustavo
Hi Gustavo! I’d be happy to send it to you via email.
I’d be interested in reading as well. 🙂
Hi Emily! Just wanted to say that I’ve really enjoyed reading through your posts. Looking forward to future updates! 🙂

Thanks for creating this blog! It’s so heartwarming to find fellow “existential migrants” 🙂
I’ve felt like this forever and, finally, I can call a name to this concept of not feeling at “home” in my hometown 🙂
Take care and whenever you come back to Southern Europe, let me know and let’s go for coffee!!

Hi Liliana! Thanks for your comment! It was also nice for me to finally be able to put a name to it. In fact, studying Americans in Buenos Aires for my thesis started me on a path of self-discovery that helped me truly understand more about myself and the life choices I’ve made in a profound way; here it is in case you haven’t read it! https://urbanexpats.com/2016/01/28/i-have-always-been-an-existential-migrant/. Where in Southern Europe??
