Tod Hamilton is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Sociology and a Faculty Associate of the Office of Population Research. His research interests are in the field of demography, with an emphasis on immigration and health. His current research evaluates the relative importance of culture and selective migration in explaining differential patterns of stratification between U.S.-born and foreign-born individuals in the United States. Hamilton’s research also explores the degree of health selection among contemporary immigrants to the United States as well as the role that social, economic, and health conditions in immigrants’ countries of origin play in explaining variation in their post-migration health in the United States

Tod Hamilton received his Ph.D. from the University of Texas at Austin in 2010. He joined the faculty at Princeton in 2012 after completing a postdoctoral fellowship at the Harvard School of Public Health.
