Will Hurley is a sophomore economics and global affairs major interested in migration studies and political economy. He assists Professor Eva Dziadula in the economics department, who is currently finishing a project regarding the US family-centered immigration policy and its impact on marital relations and divorce. They are now looking into potential projects such as climate-driven migration, domestic migration in China and its relationship with marital status, how access to driver’s licenses for immigrants will influence hit-and-run accidents, and more.
Moving forward, Hurley is excited to conduct important international research on topics affecting global policy, and he hopes to conduct independent international research as well.
