I am a Professor in the Department of Geography at the University of Connecticut. At the University, I have served as the Director of the Center for Population Research, Urban Studies, and the State Data Center
My have two primary research interests. The first focuses on the dynamics of migration within the United States and other developed countries, while the second concerns the shifting geographic distribution of the poor within US metropolitan areas.
This work has been supported by the National Science Foundation, the UK Economic and Social Research Council, and the Brookings Foundation, and has been published in leading social science journals such as Demography, the Annals of the American Association of Geographers, and the Journal of the Royal Statistical Society.
I also have a keen interest in the shifting demographics of Connecticut and its importance to public policy issues (see What Exodus? High-Skill Workers Drawn To CT's Quality Of Life). Please take a look at the link to my blog on Connecticut Demographic Issues.
