As Assistant Professor of Sociology 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. I am the winner of the Canadian Sociological Association’s 2021 Early Career Investigator Award. And my book, Here, There, and Elsewhere: The Making of Immigrant Identities in a Globalized World (Stanford UP 2020), is the recipient of several prestigious awards, namely the 2021 Distinguished Scholarship Award from the Pacific Sociological Association given to the most important sociological scholarship of the preceding year, and the 2021 Thomas and Znaniecki Book Award from the International Migration Section of the American Sociological Association given for outstanding social science publication in the field of international migration. 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 talks 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 competitive grants and awards. My next project, Race, Religion, and Romance is funded by a SSHRC Insight Grant and a Connaught New Researcher Award. I received my PhD from UCLA in 2018. My work is featured in both media and policy sectors.
