Quincy Thomas Stewart is an Associate Professor of Sociology at Northwestern University.

His current work includes: 1) analyzing racial inequality using agent-based models, 2) examining the role of disease prevalence in mortality outcomes, and 3) analyzing racial disparities in attitudes, socioeconomic status and health outcomes.
