Much of my research focuses how incentives affect migration decisions in poor settings, often using experimental or quasi-experimental frameworks. In recent years I have been examining general patterns of rural-urban migration across the life course within sub-Saharan Africa and am currently studying the impact of climate factors on rural-urban migration. A separate line of my work explores ethnic identity and the assimilation of immigrants using historical census data from North America.
