Research Interests: Migration, urban sociology, and inequality.

Asad L. Asad is a Ph.D. candidate in Sociology at Harvard University, where he is a Beinecke Scholar, a National Science Foundation Graduate Research Fellow, a Graduate Fellow in the Multidisciplinary Program in Inequality and Social Policy, and a Graduate Student Associate with the Weatherhead Center for International Affairs. His primary research interests encompass the fields of migration, urban sociology, and inequality. At the intersection of these fields, he explores why people migrate (both internally and internationally), and how their moves influence socioeconomic mobility outcomes. Asad's current research seeks to provide fresh perspectives on unauthorized migration from Mexico, illuminating previously-overlooked social processes that explain the remarkable persistence of this population in the United States across time.
