My name is Zach Ward, and I am a graduate student in the Economics Department
at the University of Colorado - Boulder.

My research is in the field of labor economics, focusing on topics such as migration, human capital and economic history. My dissertation focuses why many migrants returned home in the early 1900s. Specifically, I have research papers on the self-selection into return migration, how immigration policy and World War I changed out-migration, and the experience of Mexican return migration.
