Interests: Urban Immigration (particularly of South Asian Americans), Ethnography and Critical Feminist Issues.

Bio: Attained a BA in Sociology/Anthropology from Pace University, NYC and MA in Liberal Studies from The Graduate Center, CUNY. I became interested in studying South Asian Americans through grappling with identity issues as a second-generation Indo-Guyanese American. Most of my research focuses on generational, religious, gendered and class differences that shape ethnic identities. I am also interested in sexual agency and sexual health issues which are almost invisible in most South Asian sociological publications. Currently, my dissertation research grapples with the reconstruction of a West Indian American identity through the lives of second generation Indo-Guyanse youth in the New York Metro Area.
