Research in progress

Books in progress

I am working on a second, single-authored book tentatively entitled Diaspora Management Logics. The book is building on various diaspora-related projects I have been involved with. 

Maya Tudor and I are co-authoring a book tentatively entitled Varieties of Nationalism (under contract with Cambridge University Press), which is building on our recently published article in the Annual Review of Political Science entitled “Nationalism: What We Know and What We Still Need to Know” (w/ Maya Tudor) where we take stock of political science debates on nationalism to critically assess what we already know and what we still need to learn.
