I am a family demographer. In my research, I analyze the relationships between the economics of households and family change. My latest works focus on the outsourcing of domestic work among households. In these studies, I analyzed how the outsourcing of domestic work affects women's fertility and labor force participation; and how it is being affected by social policies. My current work focuses on the relationships between ideational change (e.g. changes in gender role attitudes and changes in preferences for leisure) and between second demographic transition behaviors. In my research, I apply state-of-the-art quantitative methods. I also enjoy transmitting my knowledge and experience in quantitative methods to my students. In my second shift, I am a mother of 3 amazing kids and a Shih Tzu dog.
