Department of Sociology
Hello & Welcome
I am an Assistant Professor in the Department of Sociology at York University. My recent research on political culture, migration and cities has appeared in peer-reviewed journals including Social Science Research, Social Forces, The Sociological Quarterly, Ethnic and Racial Studies, International Political Science Review, International Journal of Comparative Sociology, Urban Studies, Geoforum, Chinese Sociological Review, PNAS, POLS ONE, The American Sociologist, Journal of Contemporary China, The China Review, Chinese Journal of Sociology, and Oxford Handbook of Social and Political Trust.
I believe strongly in the importance of sharing and disseminating my research findings. I have published opinion articles in Macleans—Canada’s national current affairs and news magazine, Global Dialogue—Magazine of the International Sociological Association, and The Ubyssey—UBC’s official student newspaper. I have shared my research with the public via national and international TV, radio and newspaper forums including NPR, CBC National news, CTV News, CBC Radio, Roundhouse Radio, Fairchild Radio, The Washington Post, The Economist, Financial Times, Toronto Star, and University Herald.
I act occasionally as a reviewer for journals including American Journal of Sociology, American Sociological Review, American Political Science Review, Social Forces, Social Problems, Urban Studies, City & Community, Sociology of Education, Population Research and Policy Review, International Journal of Comparative Sociology, Sociological Forum, Frontiers Psychology, International Political Science Review, Asian Journal of Comparative Politics, Chinese Journal of Communication, Social & Cultural Geography, Journal of Contemporary China, and Canadian Review of Sociology.
