Assistant Professor of Sociology
Arts and Sciences
My research interests center on the gendered organization of paid and unpaid labor, and its consequences for social inequality, health and family functioning. Current projects consider the mental health benefits of employment for mothers, investigating how intra-household resource distribution, gender attitudes and life course stages condition the link between employment and mental health. Other collaborative research examines the consequences of gender egalitarianism for marriage, and patterns of nonstandard employment hours across the life course.
