Biography

Tomás R. Jiménez, Ph.D., Stanford University sociologist, author, and public commentator. He is a dynamic speaker who brings a fresh perspective on issues related to diversity, ethnic and national identity, policy, and education. His research and writing focus on immigration, assimilation, social mobility, and ethnic and racial identity. With his B.S. in sociology from Santa Clara University, and his masters and Ph.D. degrees from Harvard, he draws on original research, experience in the world of public policy, and his own life in providing a grounded, yet forward-looking, perspective on what growing diversity means for America.

Dr. Jiménez' recently published book, Replenished Ethnicity: Mexican Americans, Immigration, and Identity, (University of California Press, 2010), is an incisive look at the way that immigration shapes how Latinos think about themselves as Americans, and more generally, how immigration is changing what it means to be American.

Dr. Jiménez has published articles in leading research journals, and his commentaries on diversity and immigration have appeared in the Los Angeles Times, CNN.com, KQED public radio (San Francisco), The San Francisco Chronicle, and The San-Diego Union Tribune. He has also provided commentary for NBC Nightly News with Brian Williams, National Public Radio, CNN's Lou Dobbs Tonight, TIME Magazine, USA Today, the Los Angeles Times, and The Washington Post.

Before coming to Stanford, Dr. Jiménez taught at the University of California, San Diego. He has also been a Fellow at the New America Foundation. Before that, he was the American Sociological Association Congressional Fellow in the office of Rep. Michael Honda (CA-15), where he served as a legislative aide for immigration, veterans' affairs, housing, and election reform.
