Assistant Professor of Sociology. Ali's research interests lie at the intersection of international migration and political sociology with an emphasis on comparative immigration studies. He teaches courses on international migration, immigration in the United States and social science research methods. His research investigates the interactions between globalization and international migration as manifested in transnational civil society organizations, electoral politics and processes of ethno-racial stigmatization.
Ali is currently working on four interrelated projects including 1) a quantitative analysis of immigrants' participation in domestic and homeland-oriented electoral politics in Europe 2) comparative research investigating ethno-racial organizational stigma among Pakistani civil society organizations in London, Toronto, and New York City, 3) collaborative research examining the effects of citizenship regimes on voter turnout among first and second-generation immigrants in Europe and 4) archival research exploring the evolving political discourse on immigration and race in a British trade union (1950-2015). Ali's research has been funded and supported by the European Commission, the University of Oxford’s International Migration Institute, Wolfson College-Oxford, University of California Office of the President, University of California Center for New Racial Studies, U.C. Davis Migration Research Cluster and the U.C. Davis Gifford Center for Population Studies. His research has been published in the Journal of Ethnic and Migration Studies, International Migration Review, Journal for the Scientific Study of Religion, and the University of Oxford's International Migration Institute Working Paper Series.
