Vijai Singh, PhD

  • Professor

In addition to Social Stratification and Mobility, my research interests include the study of Sociology of Science.  I am engaged in a comparative study of the processes of production of scientific knowledge in the U.S. and Western Europe.  The role of political, economic, and social institutions is being analyzed in this context.  In addition, I am also collaborating with academics in India on three different research and publication projects that deal with sustainable development, poverty, and economic policies at federal and local levels.
