I am a postdoctoral fellow at the Institute for Gender and the Economy (GATE) at the Rotman School of Management, University of Toronto. I received my Ph.D. from the University of Virginia, Sociology Department in August 2019.
My research agenda is concerned with understanding how people grapple with the sociocultural mechanisms of inequality and exclusion at work and in their intimate lives. My scholarship, which spans the subfields of work, gender, sexuality and race, seeks to center the experiences of South Asian and Muslim women, actors whose voices and perspectives are generally underrepresented in academic research.
My research has been supported by the National Science Foundation, the American Association of University Women and a Fulbright Scholarship.

I recently spoke about police reform on Pakistani News channel TVOne. My take:
When they try to tell victims of violence to compromise, the police act as brokers of patriarchy, enforcing culture rather than the law; We need to focus more on gender mainstreaming rather than gender sensitivity training, if we change the composition of the police force, we will see a change in police culture; violence against women operates on a continuum- stop tolerating so-called minor incidents of harassment. We need a change in the overall culture of acceptance.
