Personal Statement:

Philip Anglewicz's primary research interest is in the relationship between migration and health in developing countries, which he has pursued in several contexts. In 2007, Anglewicz conducted a study on the relationship between internal migration, marriage, and HIV infection in Malawi, which involved collecting survey and HIV biomarker data for over 500 migrants in Malawi. In his current research, Anglewicz is investigating the relationship between rural-urban migration and health in Thailand, and the effect of Hurricane Katrina on migration patterns on the Vietnamese population in New Orleans. In addition to migration, Anglewicz is also engaged in research on the effects of the HIV/AIDS epidemic on household composition and social support systems in sub-Saharan Africa, biomarker measures of health, and survey methodology.
