Visiting Scholar in Population Studies

Overview

I am trained as a geographer and regional scientist and am past Associate Director of Brown's Spatial Structures in the Social Sciences (S4) initiative. I am currently a Visiting Scholar in Population Studies at the Population Studies and Training Center (PSTC) at Brown and Professor of Geographical Analysis at Newcastle University in the United Kingdom.

In my research, I focus on methods or tools for characterizing spatial variation in population change and characteristics, and also pursue research questions that investigate the sources of change, as well as connections between population change and some particular outcome, such as homeownership or college student diversity. I have published recently on college student migration in the United States; the demographic sources of population loss; and the changing county-level diversity and composition of the U.S. population.
