Richard Turner is a Postdoctoral Research Associate in Spatial Structures in the Social Sciences (S4) and PSTC.  He received his PhD in Policy Analysis and Management from Cornell University in 2012.  His research focuses on the social and economic integration of immigrant populations in the US.  In his dissertation, he examines how Hispanic migrant workers are being incorporated into the economies of nonmetropolitan “new destinations” - rural portions of the country that have only recently become important sites of Latino settlement.  Furthermore, he is now conducting post-dissertation analyses that investigate the demographic factors influencing high school completion levels within the Mexican American population.
