- Seminar: Gender and Domestic Labor
I am currently pursuing two lines of research. The first addresses how men and women around the world divide domestic labor. I am particularly interested in how couples create equal relationships, and how students envision the balance between work and family in their futures. My second area of research focuses on the educational paths of preschool teachers. What factors facilitate and impede their pursuit of higher education?
