Victor Nee

Professor of Sociology, Cornell University

Nee will analyze data from a three-year research project on the emergence of a new tech industry in lower Manhattan following the Great Recession. He will investigate how the high level of immigrant involvement—both as tech workers and as entrepreneurs—has shaped the rapid expansion of this industry. Nee will also examine the ways in which political and economic institutions have aided the growth of the Manhattan tech economy.
