  • Much of my research examines two questions: What do workers want from their jobs? and To what extent do workers get what they want?  I am particularly interested in the extent to which employees can arrange their work schedules to accommodate their lives outside of work.  The modern labor market produces both over-employment and under-employment, schedules that vary wildly and schedules that are inflexible.  Workers also vary greatly in the amount of input they have when determining their work schedules.  I am currently working with a small team of graduate students to collect data from people who take part in the "gig economy."  We will examine the different types of paid work they do, their weekly work schedules, and how those schedules are related to a number of work-family outcomes.
