His most current research explores the role of diasporas and social networks on migration flows and patterns, performance of migrants in the destination labor markets, linkages between migration, trade and foreign direct investment flows and causes of the migration decisions of physicians from sub-Saharan Africa.

The latest, International Migration, Economic Development and Policy, was published in 2007.
