the Sociologist Musician
Ali R. Chaudhary, Ph.D.
Assistant Professor of Sociology
Rutgers University-New Brunswick
I am a sociologist and musician based in New Jersey. I write and teach about race, immigration, politics, nonprofits, and the sociology of music.
I earned a Ph.D. in sociology from the University of California and am currently an Assistant Professor of Sociology at the flagship New Brunswick campus of Rutgers University in New Jersey. Before coming to Rutgers, I was a post-doctoral researcher at the University of Oxford and Junior Research Fellow of Wolfson College-Oxford.
In addition to my research and teaching, I'm an occasional jazz guitarist and perform weekly in the NYC-metropolitan region.

My primary areas of research include race & immigration, civic engagement, organizations, and the sociology of music. I am currently working on a number of projects seeking to interrogate the social constructions and consequences of ascriptive categories (e.g. race, nationality, ethnicity, nativity, etc.) for minority groups in North America and Europe. In my latest research, I use insights gleaned from my work on race and immigration to understand how boundaries and social categories shape inequalities in the production and performance of music in the United States.
