Rahim Kurwa is an ABF Visiting Scholar (September 2022- August 2023) and an Assistant Professor in the Department of Criminology, Law and Justice and Department of Socioogy (by courtesy) at the University of Illinois at Chicago.  His research is at the intersection of race, policing, and residential segregation. His book project, Apartheid's Afterlives: Policing Black Life in the Antelope Valley, documents how Los Angeles' northernmost suburb used the criminalization and policing of the Section 8 Housing Choice Voucher program to evict Black residents and re-segregate the region. Professor Kurwa's work has received awards from the American Sociological Association, Society for the Study of Social Problems, and the Surveillance Studies Network.
