I completed MA in Sociology from Concordia University in 1993. The title of my thesis was “Foreign Aid in Developing Countries”. I received Ph.D. in Humanities (Sociology, Economics and History) from Concordia University in 2000.
The area of my research interest was to study the experience of immigrant adaptation in Canadian society. I taught at McGill (as a graduate student), Concordia and Brock University before coming to teach at John Abbott in 2006.
I received the Queen Elizabeth the 2nd Diamond Jubilee Award issued by the Governor General of Canada in 2012.
My current research interests include immigration, ethnic minority experience, and identity politics.
