Research Overview

The primary foci of my research are social inequalities in gender, work, and health.

Most of my work is grounded in gender theory and sociological, social psychology. My methods include quantitative analyses of large, secondary data sets; laboratory experiments; collection and analysis of physiological measures of stress response; and in-depth interviews.

Much of my work examines the causes and consequences, especially stress and health consequences, of occupational sex-segregation in the United States.

Other work looks at sexualities, masculinities, physiological stress response to the social environment, motherhood, gender ideology, and workplace integration.
