As Assistant Professor of Sociology and Bissell-Heyd Research Fellow at University of Toronto, I investigate new ways of understanding how migration and global inequalities intersect and affect immigrants, particularly those from Muslim-majority countries in the West. My  book, Here, There, and Elsewhere: The Making of Immigrant Identities in a Globalized World (Stanford University Press 2020), on South Asian Muslim Americans is the recipient of the prestigious 2021 Distinguished Scholarship Award, given by the Pacific Sociological Association to the most important sociological scholarship of the preceding year. Other recognitions I won include an Honorable Mention for Best Article from the Global and Transnational Sociology section of the American Sociological Association. My work has been adopted as required text in over a dozen courses in U.S. and Canadian universities. And I have given invited presentations in over 20 university venues in the U.S., Canada, Europe, the Middle East, and North Africa. As Principal Investigator, I have secured consistent funding for my research through various competitive grants and awards. My next project, Race, Religion, and Romance is funded by a Connaught New Researcher Award. I received my PhD from UCLA in 2018. My work is featured in both media and policy sectors.
