Research interests

My research investigates gender inequality, family dynamics and wellbeing over the life course. I have examined these patterns in Australia, but also cross-nationally to show how differing social contexts affect individual outcomes. I often use longitudinal data that tracks individuals over time to examine how life course transitions affect social and economic outcomes and I have a particular interest in understanding the intergenerational transfer of inequality.
