R. Scott Smith's research interests are focused on the social ecology and psychology of cultural adaptation, particularly the adaptation of host communities to the presence of immigrants and vice versa. The refugee resettlement process in Utica, NY and the evolution of identity on the Caribbean island of Martinique are two settings in which he has investigated these processes. Dr. Smith also studies community building and prejudice reduction.
