Nathalie Williams

Nathalie Williams is Associate Professor in the Department of Sociology and the Jackson School of International Studies at the University of Washington. Her research focuses on migration patterns, during periods of armed conflict, natural disasters and climate change, and social change. Her work considers why even during periods of intense conflict or drastic environmental change, many, if not most, people do not migrate. She has pioneered new data collection strategies, including using mobile phone call records to track migration and local mobility after violent events and natural disasters.
