Chad Sparber has been with Colgate since 2006. Prior to that, he earned his BA in economics at Western Washington University and his PhD at the University of California – Davis. He has also been an external research fellow at the Centre for Research and Analysis of Migration at University College London since May 2009.
Chad’s initial research examined the macroeconomic costs and benefits of racial diversity, concentrating on the US experience. More recently, he has been studying the economic causes and consequences of immigration with a particular focus on how native-born workers respond to immigration through their occupational and internal migration decisions. His research on immigration has been published in The American Economic Journal: AppliedEconomics, The Review of Economics and Statistics, Industrial Relations, and The Journal of Urban Economics. It has also been discussed in the Economic Report to the President and cited in Newsweek.
Chad is currently leading the London Economics Study Group and also led it in Spring 2009.
