Paul Kasun is a doctoral student in the Department of Sociology at the University of Texas at Austin and a Trainee at the Population Research Center.  His doctoral research compares the effects of migration in two sending communities in the Western Highlands of Guatemala. He collected original data in Guatemala.  He surveyed 234 people in two towns, asking them 74 questions ranging from demographics to perceptions of social issues.  His research of indigenous people and Ladino groups is a topic close to his heart.  As a Missionary Benedictine priest, he has worked as an immigration advocate helping people primarily from Mexico and Central America.  He has brought this experience and his theological training into sociology and population studies.  He will be defending his dissertation in the fall of 2015.
