Matt Townley, PhD Student, The Demographic Underpinnings of Urban Population Growth and Decline
I am a population geographer whose work intersects strongly with research themes in urban, economic, and political geography. My interests are closely aligned with the sub-field of spatial demography, which includes demographic researchers from many social science and health disciplines who are interested in measuring spatial effects on population processes and outcomes. I welcome applications from students interested in pursuing any type of population research from any spatial perspective, but especially those who want to work on projects aligned with my expertise in US immigration/internal migration, residential segregation, and US labor markets/employment geographies. I am open to all methods and approaches to research. However, the majority of my current and previous students use statistical methods to answer theoretically informed research questions on the above mentioned projects.
