Name Massey, Douglas S.
Location Princeton University

 Election Citation
Massey is a demographer who has made fundamental contributions to studies of race relations and international migrations. His ambitious studies of Mexican-American migration demonstrate the powerful cumulative forces that propel the process on both sides of the border. And his 1993 book argued persuasively that patterns of residential exclusion are the principal cause of socioeconomic disadvantage among African Americans.
 Research Interests
Current research focuses on trends, causes, and consequences of residential segregation in the United States; trends, causes, and consequences of international migration around the world; the effects of U.S. immigration and border policies on immigration to the United States; and the academic performance and emotional wellbeing of minority students at selective colleges and universities.
