Educational Background

B.A. in Economics from Smith College

M.A. in Sociology from Cornell University



My research seeks to understand the intersections of family, gender, and the labor market by using an array of quantitative methods. My ongoing and completed projects focus on the division of household labor in same-sex and different sex-couples, time use among people who work from home, how parents’ subjective well-being during time with their children varies by their children’s ages, and how perceived job insecurity is related to the division of household labor among couples.
