Research Interests: Inequality, Social Demography, Neighborhoods, Housing, Suburbs, Immigration, Race & Ethnicity
Aaron Fernandez is a PhD student in Sociology. His research interests lie at the intersection of neighborhoods, housing, immigration, and social stratification. His current work examines the suburbanization of immigration and how it relates to inequality between immigrants and the US-born. He also works on changes in segregation over time, people’s perceptions of their city’s racial geography, and the role of housing in inequality.
Prior to beginning his PhD, Aaron worked as a research assistant on a mixed-methods project examining intergroup contact between black, white, Mexican, and Indian residents of the Philadelphia and Atlanta metro areas. His research investigated neighborhood, public space, and workplace segregation and the implications for intergroup trust and threat.
