  • Prior to returning to Purdue as faculty, Dr. Duncan was assistant professor of political science at Mercyhurst University, Erie PA, where she also served as the director of the Honors Program for 2013-2014 academic year.

    Dr. Duncan's research broadly focuses on international migration. Her 2012 book, Immigration Policymaking in the Global Era: In Pursuit of Global Talent, (Palgrave Macmillan, 2012), examines high skilled labor migration and the role of immigration policy as a determinant in the movement of global talent. She has published work on high skilled labor migration, immigration policies in the facilitation of brain drains and gains, international migrant circulation, and naturalization and immigrant integration in the United States. She is currently working on research that examines the political consequences of emigration on countries of origin. Besides migration, Dr. Duncan has an interest in Caribbean politics. Within this area, her research focuses on democratic sustainability and integration.
