My research focuses on family change and social inequality in the contemporary U.S. and other advanced industrialized countries.  I have published on women’s childbearing intentions, the quality and stability of cohabiting relationships, social class differences in family formation, and the mechanisms linking family environments and child wellbeing. Current projects expand on these themes to address issues at the intersection of parenting, work, and well-being from a cross-national perspective.
