My research focuses on the links between work and family across the lifespan, particularly in mid and later life. I am particularly interested in how work-family conflict is associated with employees' and their family members’ time use and perceived time adequacy (i.e., feelings of having enough time) for daily activities and health behavior (e.g., sleep, and physical exercise). I am also interested in how daily stress impacts individuals’ physiological and health biomarkers, including stress hormones and cardiometabolic risk biomarkers.

My research is centered on physiological and behavioral pathways that link psychosocial well-being to health across adulthood. I have examined the influences of positive emotions and depression on subsequent health behaviors, functional status, and cellular aging among patients with chronic conditions, particularly coronary heart disease. My recent work focuses on experiences in everyday life—both positive and stressful—as protective or risk factors for cardiovascular disease processes (e.g., inflammation). This research can inform the development of novel strategies to enhance both mental and physical well-being and to promote healthy aging.
