Broadly, my research explores the intersection of family, work, gender, and race/ethnicity. I am currently working on several projects. The first set of projects focuses on predictors of marital satisfaction, measured as marital happiness, perceived fairness in the division of labor, and sexual frequency using the National Survey of Families and Households (NSFH). The second set of projects examines the intergenerational transmission of marital conflict using data from the NSFH and focus groups. We are exploring the effects of parental conflict on adult children’s relationships with their parents and with romantic partners. A third set of projects centers on time use among youth, including the time they spend in paid work, housework, and extracurricular activities; and how participation vary by family structure, gender, race, and regional residence. Prior research has centered on couple-level analyses of perceptions of fairness in the household division of labor and predictors of divorce.
