My research focuses on gender, work, occupations, family, organizations, and social inequality, and primarily uses large-scale survey data and quantitative methods. The primary goal of my research is to identify sources of gender inequality in labor market, family, and the interplay between the two. I am particularly interested in examining how macro-economic, institutional, and demographic shifts in the U.S. economy introduce new sources of gender inequality, and how these sources reinforce many forms of gender inequality, such as the gender pay gap, occupational sex segregation, and the gender gap in labor force participation.
