My main area of research focuses on understanding the intersection of employees’ work and family lives. Specifically, I have conducted research aimed at understanding organizational initiatives to help employees managing competing life demands (i.e., flexible work arrangements); research that explores the relationship between work-family conflict and health outcomes, including eating behaviors and physiological indicators of health; research that addresses the theoretical foundations of work-family interactions; and research targeted at understanding how dual-earner couples balance work and family roles.

My secondary area of interest is in career development, with a specific focus on workplace and academic mentoring, people’s idiosyncratic definitions of career success, and the consequences of career compromise.

I have occasional opportunities for undergraduate researchers to work in my lab. Inquiries should be sent directly to me at:
