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. My current research focuses on marital conflict and husbands\' and wives\' relative earnings, occupationally homogamous spouses, time allocation among academic faculty, and diversity in work-family issues (including working time and time trade-offs). I currently serve as Faculty Advisor for Alpha Kappa Delta (the International Sociology Honor Society) and the Sociology Club and as departmental representative to the Calhoun Honors College.
