At my core, I am a race scholar. My work brings a racial lens and a broad methodological toolkit to bear on enduring questions in sociology's health and urban subfields. The increased immigration of people of color to the United States over the past half-century demands a rethinking of longstanding sociological theories and conventional wisdom regarding racial integration and immigrant assimilation. My research raises important questions about the consequences of this demographic transition, offers novel theoretical frameworks for addressing these questions, and provides new empirical evidence about racial disparities and inequality in the United States.
