Dr. Lucas Drouhot
Lucas Drouhot joined the MPI-MMG as a Post-doctoral Fellow in SCD as part of a team conducting the “ProDiv” project studying assent to diversity. His particular role involves large-scale survey research. As a sociologist, his substantive interests are in international migration, social networks, and social stratification. His research agenda focuses on diversification and the incorporation of the children of immigrants in Western Europe and the United States - with an empirical focus on acculturation dynamics, friendship patterns, and entrepreneurial action as they relate to broader processes of social inclusion. Before joining the Institute, Lucas obtained a Ph.D. in Sociology from Cornell University (2018), a B.A. in Sociology from McGill University (2012), and a Licence de Science Politique from the University of Lyon (2009).
