Areas of Interest: 
and Religion
My research focuses how culture and religion shape the assimilation experiences of Arab Americans and Muslim Americans, including issues of women’s employment, immigrant health, and political integration. This research includes examinations of inequality among other U.S. racial and ethnic groups and among Arabs and Muslims elsewhere in the world.
