Mitra Naseh’s scholarship focuses on the social and economic integration of minoritized and racialized groups with a migration background. Her work examines migration policies as social determinants of health. Naseh also has an interest in neurodevelopmental and neurodegenerative conditions, specifically cognitive conditions associated with the trauma caused by forced migration.

Her research is deeply rooted in and guided by her previous professional work experience as a staff member of non-governmental organizations and the United Nations in the Middle East and South Asia. Naseh’s emerging research has been funded by foundations and federal agencies including the Russell Sage Foundation and NIH.

She is among the recipients of the Society for Social Work and Research (SSWR) Outstanding Social Work Dissertation Award (2021) and the Council on Social Work Education (CSWE) Scholars in Global & Intercultural Competence (2022). Naseh is the co-author of the second edition of the Best Practices for Social Work with Refugees and Immigrants. She serves as the SSWR Immigrants and Refugees (I & R) cluster co-chair and has been the co-convener of the SSWR I &R Special Interest Group since 2016. Naseh also serves as an appointed member of the advisory committee of the CSWE’s Center for Diversity and Social and Economic Justice.
