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 Work, Employment and Society, Community, Work & Family, American Sociological Review, European Sociological Review and Population and Development Review.
