My primary research focuses on the causes and consequences of internal migration within the United States, both historic and current. I also work on data quality issues, particularly U.S. Census undercount, and their impact on empirical research using Census data. An expert in econometric methods used to evaluate programs and policies, I teach advanced statistical methods classes at the Humphrey School at the master’s and PhD level. Recently, my work has been featured in The Weekly StandardBloomberg, and The Washington Post.
