Life Events, Gender, and Inequality in Adult Life Courses

In this line of research, I study the consequences of life events and decisions, often in conjunction with gender, on the formation and development of inequality in adult life courses. A first focus is on how parenthood contributes to (gender) inequality in the family, in the labor market, and in health (behaviors). The second focus is on the career effects of gender and different life events and decisions that may be interpreted as productivity signals, for example, individual layoffs, studying abroad, and the receipt of occupational awards.
