My broad interest is in demographic change, gender differences, and their interaction with economic growth. Recently I’ve been involved in three research agendas. First, I examined the interaction between income inequality and fertility choice through the marketization of childcare. Secondly, I examine how political preferences shape gender differences among top executives. Finally, I examine how changes in bargaining power within the household affect fertility choice and investment in children’s education.
