My research focuses on immigrant adaptation and family survival strategies in receiving contexts. I am currently examining life course transitions of immigrant and native youth in the United States. This includes a comparison of two cohorts of adolescents in their educational, family formation and labor market trajectories. I am also examining the role of family and school context on the early school transitions of young children in immigrant families. Another area of research continues my long-term interest in immigration, family/household composition and intergenerational wealth-flows. This work addresses the economic distribution of wealth in immigrant and native households and the stability of extended family households over time. The relative importance of national origins and placement in the racial/ethnic hierarchy for immigrant adaptation also underpin much of this work. This has led to my involvement in other research projects examining other dimensions of immigrant integration such as the residential segregation of immigrants in the United States.
