Dr. Andrew DJ Shield specializes in the past and present of LGBTQ sexuality, immigration and diversity in Europe. He is the author of Immigrants in the Sexual Revolution: Perceptions and Participation in Northwest Europe (2017), and Immigrants on Grindr: Race, Sexuality and Belonging Online (2019). 

Immigrants on Grindr investigates how gay- and queer-dentified immigrants and refugees experience inclusion or exclusion within sexually-charged online subcultures.
