Graduate Student Fellow

Chris is a Ph.D. student in the Department of Political Science. His research focuses on how internal migration and demographic change affect elections, representation, political participation, and public policy. Current projects examine how black outmigration to suburbs impacts minority representation in traditionally white districts at the state and local level, and on how the spatial distribution of minority voters affects electoral outcomes. Additional research explores how humans interact with the natural environment, and Chris is currently a Crossroads Fellow at the Bren School of Environmental Science and Management where he is part of a team examining public opinion toward Grizzly Bear reintroduction in California.
