Social demographer Lincoln Quillian is interested in social stratification, race and ethnicity, urban sociology, and quantitative research methods.

Most of his research has focused on how social structure and group demography influence inequality and intergroup attitudes, with special emphasis on race and ethnicity. Along these lines, he has studied how the relative size of racial minority groups influences racial attitudes.

He has investigated the patterns of migration that underlie segregation on the basis of race and income in American cities.

Recently, he has published on the correspondence between audit measures of discrimination and survey measures of prejudice (with Devah Pager of Princeton University), racial segregation in adolescent friendship networks, and the influence of racial stereotypes on perceptions of neighborhood crime levels.

These projects have appeared as publications in a number of journals in sociology and demography.

He has been awarded a fellowship at the Center for Advanced Study in the Behavioral Sciences at Stanford University.
