    Professor Wyndham-Douds conducts research on race inequality. They are broadly interested in suburban inequality and community studies.

    Using methods ranging from causal inference to ethnography, Dr. Wyndham-Douds’ research examines mechanisms that create and sustain racial inequality in contemporary American society. Their current research focuses on the intertwined nature of race and space to investigate the spatial production of racial inequality in suburbs. This work includes projects on Black suburbs, municipal incorporation, and a book examining racial inequality in highly diverse suburbs.

    Wyndham-Douds’ research has been supported by the National Science Foundation and has appeared in the American Journal of Sociology, Social Forces, Sociology of Race and Ethnicity, and more.
