No, he cannot be her wali. Look for a Muslim in her family from her father’s side and he would become her wali. If there is no one like that, then the muslim judge becomes her wali.

Sheikh, I wanted to know if a non-practising muslim father is considered to be a Wali or not? Can in this case a nikah be valid and is a consent still needed? Please, if possible, provide the ruling and reference.
