Kyle Crowder’s research focuses on the dynamics and consequences of residential stratification. Under this broad umbrella, a central focus of his most recent work has been on the micro-level residential processes shaping persistent patterns of residential segregation and environmental inequality.

His research provides insights into racial and ethnic differences in the likelihood of moving out of, and into, neighborhoods characterized by varying levels of population diversity, socioeconomic disadvantage, and physical pollution; the ways in which these disparate mobility processes are shaped by differences in individual- and family-level characteristics, as well as the broader economic, social, and demographic context of residential markets; and the repercussions of these mobility patterns for group differences in access to residential resources. His work also assesses the effects of these neighborhood conditions on individual outcomes, including educational attainment and adolescent development.
