Over the new few years my research agenda will be centered on the theme of migration systems, and will include the following five components:
- A theoretical synthesis of migration systems theory, including past and recent developments and emergent research needs.
- Descriptive efforts working with new global migration flow data.
- Empirical linkages to processes of ethnic and racial stratification and inequality in the United States.
- Formal models connecting global migration patterns to immigrants' [health] assimilation in the United States.
- A generalized systems framework for modeling and understanding disaster-oriented migration.
