Research

I currently research parents’ intra-household time allocation decisions, focusing on parental quality time, and the implications for early childhood development. I also research the effect of academic redshirting on student and mental health outcomes, as well as labor market risks and the impact of school reopenings on parental work in the era of COVID-19.
