Richard A. Wright

Orvil Dryfoos Professor of Geography and Public Affairs

Ph.D. Geography, Indiana University

Research interests center on how immigrants fit into U.S. society. With long-term collaborator, Mark Ellis (University of Washington), Professor Wright addresses this question in several ways. He studies the labor market interactions of immigrants and migrants in and between the major metropolitan areas and regions of the United States. His research features the deeply segmented nature of these labor markets and the limited interaction between the foreign born and the native born.
