My research interests lie in the gendered patterns of work and family over the life course. My dissertation examines how professional and graduate school students and their romantic partners make early career decisions together. I am also working on a study of health limitations in older couples, and a study of interracial romantic relationships and depression. In addition to this work, I am a research analyst at NORC on the National Social Life Health and Aging Project (NSHAP).
