As a sociologist, I am interested in studying work and family in the changing labor markets. Before joining UH, I was a Max Weber postdoctoral fellow at the European University Institute. I earned my PhD from the University of Southern California. I was born and raised in South Korea.

My research interests include inequality, gender, work, family, and social policy. In my research, I explore 1) class disparities in access to family-friendly workplace supportiveness, 2) gender inequality in the labor market, and 3) organizational contexts of the work-family interface. My work has been published in journals including Social Science Research, American Sociological Review, and Population and Development Review. My paper has won the 2023 IPUMS Time Use Research Award.
