My research interests lie in migration processes and their impact on social, political, and economic policies as well as identity construction, including both self-selective and assigned labels. My current research examines how religiosity and immigrant generation-levels are related to American Muslim integration, using the nationally representative 2011 Pew Muslim American Survey. In addition to this work, I am a research assistant at NORC at the University of Chicago on the National Social Life, Health, and Aging Project (NSHAP).
