My research and teaching interests focus on gender, paid labor, and family. My work has been published in the Gender & Society; Journal of Marriage and Family; Journal of Family Issue; Community, Work, and Family; and the Annals of the American Academy of Political and Social Science. I currently have two active streams of research. The first examines trends in faculty members’ preferred and actual time allocations to teaching and research, as well as the relationship between time allocation mismatches (i.e. the extent to which one allocates his or her time according to his or her preferences), job satisfaction, and attrition and turnover intentions among academic faculty, with special attention to how these relationships may be gender-differentiated. The second (co-authored with Rebecca Joyce Kissane at Lafayette College) uses original data from an online survey and in-depth interviews to examine gender differences and similarities in fantasy sports, exploring men’s and women’s motivations for participating in fantasy sports, the outcomes of their fantasy sports play, and their experiences as fantasy sports participants. I currently serve as the Interim Director for the National Scholars Program and Faculty-in-Residence for the Calhoun Honors College Living-Learning Community.
