CURRENT RESEARCH PROJECTS
Since 2006, Dr. Donato has been a principal investigator on a tri-city project that examines immigrant parent involvement
in schools (with Dr. Marshall in Political Science at Rice University). With funding from The National Science and Russell Sage Foundations as well as from Vanderbilt's Center for Nashville Studies, Dr. Donato has supervised the collection of a unique data set from interviews with immigrant parents in New York, Chicago, and Nashville. Together with Dr. Marshall, they use these new data to supplement existing analyses of federal school data and examine variation in immigrant parent involvement and school outreach programs.
Dr. Donato began developing a new project on adolescent health and migration in Mexico (in collaboration with Kathleen Mullan Harris and Krista Perreira at UNC-Chapel Hill).
In late 2007, Dr. Donato received word from the National Institute of Child Health and Development at NIH that funding for a new project, Migration and Access to Care: An Innovative Population-Based Sampling Strategy (with Dr. Weathers from UNC-Chapel Hill), is now pending.
Finally, since 1996, Dr Donato has been a principal investigator on a binational project that examines how the processes of health and migration unfold the life course (see www.mexmah.com). With funding from the William and Flora Hewlett Foundation and a close collaboration with El Colegio de San Luis in Mexico, the project has collected four waves of longitudinal data from approximately 2,000 Mexican families on both sides of the border.
