I am an Assistant Professor of Sociology at University of Toronto, St. George. I received my Ph.D. from the University of California, Los Angeles. My research interests are in the areas of international migration, race/ethnicity, religion, and nationalism. The question that guides all my research pursuits is how transnational, global forms of inequality intersect with local forms of boundary-work to affect immigrant groups, particularly those coming from Muslim-majority countries to the West. My work has received several grants and awards, including funding from the National Science Foundation, and produced publications in Sociological Forum, Ethnic and Racial Studies, Journal of Black Studies, Cultural Dynamics, and Sociology Compass. My book, Here, There, and Elsewhere: The Making of Immigrant Identities in a Globalized World is forthcoming in July 2020 from Stanford University Press.
