Tod G. Hamilton is an associate professor in Princeton’s Department of Sociology and a faculty associate of the Office of Population Research. His primary research interests lie in social stratification, immigration, and health. His research is published in Demography, the Journal of Health and Social Behavior, Social Science and Medicine, and Social Science Research.
He recently completed a book for the Russell Sage Foundation, “Immigration and the Remaking of Black America,” which documents how immigration trends since the 1960s have produced a diverse U.S. black population. The book also examines the importance of post-civil-rights-era policy changes, selective migration, and disparate reception contexts in producing variation in social outcomes among blacks in the United States.
