Dr. Kris Marsh’s general areas of expertise are the Black middle class, demography, racial residential segregation, and education. She has combined these interests to develop a research agenda that is divided into two broad areas: avenues into the Black middle class and consequences of being in the Black middle class. The common theme in her work is decomposing what it means to be Black in America by focusing on intra-group variability in class, space, identity and educational achievement.

​Some of Professor Marsh’s recent research investigates how studies on the Black middle class have focused mainly on married couples with children and highlights that never-married singles who live alone make up a rapidly growing part of the Black middle class, a development that requires rethinking how the Black middle class is defined and studied. Professor Marsh’s work raises questions on what might be some of the long-term health and wealth consequences of the demographic shifts in the Black middle class.
