Areas of Interest:

Race, Ethnicity and Migration; Biology and Health; Social Stratification; Research Methods

Graduate Student Recruitment:

I am currently recruiting graduate students that are interested in the quantitative study of Black populations. I am particularly interested in studying the Black population across five different disaggregations: skin color, internal migration, international migration, generational status and country or region of birth. Prospective students with an interest in these disaggregations and either socioeconomic status, political participation or population health should contact me ahead of the application deadline.
