The Department of Sociology and the Center for Empirical Research on Stratification & Inequality (CERSI) is delighted to announce that Ronald Kwon will be joining us as a postdoctoral fellow and lecturer starting Fall 2018. Ronald is due to receive his PhD in Sociology from the University of California, Riverside. Previously he received his BA in Economics from UC Riverside and MA in Demography from UC Irvine. He is interested in the global dynamics of international immigration, economic globalization, and rising interracial marriage and their subsequent impact on stratification outcomes. Much of his research focuses on the dynamic role that institutional environments play in shaping social relations between groups from a comparative perspective. He has already published a number of articles that have appeared in Social Forces, The Sociological Quarterly, Journal of International Migration and Integration, and Ethnicities.
Director of CERSI and Incoming Chair of Sociology Grace Kao states, “We had a large number of impressive applicants, but Ronald Kwon rose to the top very early in the process. We are thrilled to welcome him to the Yale Community. He will be an asset to all of us and will bolster our training in quantitative sociology.”
Ronald Kwon adds: “I feel fortunate to have landed in such a vibrant intellectual community and collegial department as Yale. I look forward to meeting the incoming cohort and collaborating with CERSI faculty in a productive coming year.”
