I am an ABD Ph.D. candidate in the Sociology of Religion program at Baylor University. My research interests include religion, politics, international sociology, religious freedom, and democracy.

I have published research on religious disparities in Lebanese politics, religion and Asian immigration to the United States, education and health, and religiosity among Korean Americans.

I am currently involved in research on experiences of discrimination among Muslims in the United States, a resurgence in nativism, nationalism, and anti-democratic attitudes in Europe, human capital among Hmong refugees in the United States, and religious freedom in the post-Soviet world.

I am also currently serving as a Teacher of Record at Baylor University, currently teaching an undergraduate section on the Introduction to Sociology. I plan to enter the academic job market in July of 2018
