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 the University of California Los Angeles.
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.
