Deenesh Sohoni received his PhD in sociology from the University of Washington in 2002. His sociological interests include globalization, immigration, and race relations. He is currently engaged in three research projects. For the past several years, he has been collaborating with Prof. Saporito on a project examining racial and economic segregation in U.S. public schools. This research has been published in Social Forces (2007) and Sociology of Education (2006). In addition, he is studying the social incorporation of Asian Americans—both through legal-historical research of anti-miscegenation laws (Law and Society 2007) and citizenship laws, and through the demographic analysis of intermarriage patterns. Finally, he is examining the development of anti-immigrant attitudes in the United States (Current Sociology 2006).
Prof. Sohoni regularly teaches courses in demography, race relations, global migration, and global social problems. In addition, he helped develop and has directed the study abroad program to Goa, India.
