My current research projects include an examination of the relationship between women's earnings and divorce timing and examining how men's and women's employment industry industry contribute to the gender wage gap. My previous work examines the effects of inequalities in parents’ income for a recent cohort of U.S. women on inequalities in timing and sequence of young adults’ family formation through their early 30s. I focus on how going to college, and financing college with student loans, may be mechanisms through which parental income affects family formation.
