I am a Postdoctoral Research Associate in the Division of Social Science at New York University Abu Dhabi. I received my PhD in Sociology from UCLA.
My research centers on international migration and the politics of ethnicity and nationalism in comparative perspective. In my teaching and service, I emphasize issues of race, class, gender, sexuality, citizenship, and social change. In my downtime, I enjoy trying new cuisines, cooking, playing with cats, and effortlessly diverting mosquitoes away from my travel companions.
