Research

My research specializes in examining the interplay of status and gender, both in the workplace with regards to leadership and high-status roles, as well as in the home looking at breadwinning influences and work-family dynamics. 

 

I have a number of on-going projects at the moment, including examining the impact of COVID19 on dual-income families, and determining the influence of breadwinning wives on family well-being and work attitudes.
