Tristan Ivory is an Assistant Professor in the Department of International and Comparative Labor at Cornell University. He received his PhD in 2015 from the Department of Sociology at Stanford University and completed a Postdoctoral Fellowship at the Center for Research on Race and Ethnicity in Society at Indiana University. Tristan’s research uses ethnographic observation, interviews, surveys, contemporary news accounts, and archival data to examine the resources and strategies middle-class Sub-Saharan Africans use while attempting to maximize social and economic outcomes at home and abroad. Tristan is currently revising articles and a book manuscript from previous research in Japan while writing and conducting new research on foreign-born women’s labor force participation in the United States, Japan, and Sweden and student mobility in Ghana, Kenya, and South Africa.
