BIO AND RESEARCH
My teaching and research interests are in the areas of family, race and ethnicity, gender and globalization with a focus on South Asia as well as the Asian American experience. I am currently exploring the dynamics of new middle class families in South Asia, with particular attention to how these emerging social formations shape the political landscape of the region. I am also completing a study of the intersections of race and immigration in the U.S. experience
