Biography

I started working as a graduate student with the Flexible Work and Well-Being Center in 2007 under Dr. Phyllis Moen and Dr. Erin Kelly. In 2011-2012 I spent a year as an Interdisciplinary Doctoral Fellow with the Minnesota Population Center before graduating with my Ph.D. in Sociology in 2012 and my MPH in Epidemiology in 2014. I am currently at the US Census Bureau's RDC. 

My research examines how work and family intersect to influence individual well-being across the US population and how social structures produce unequal outcomes in these areas. My dissertation used ATUS-X to examine how the amount of time individuals spend in healthy behaviors and with family is related to the Great Recession and unemployment.
