Dr. Manduca's research centers on urban and regional economic development, asking what factors determine why some places are more prosperous than others and how the economic conditions in which people live shape their life outcomes.
He also studies the consequences of rising income inequality for American life, documenting how the concentration of economic resources among the very wealthy has reduced upward mobility and exacerbated racial and regional income disparities.
