Current Research

My research is in the fields of health and labour economics, particularly in the areas where they overlap, such as the impact of labour force status on health status and vice versa. Recently, I have been examining the impact of maternal employment on child outcomes. One area of research examines the effect of maternal employment on long-run outcomes, such as employment, income, and post-secondary attendance. Another area of research examines the effect of maternal employment on the child’s likelihood of being overweight, in particular, we try to determine the reasons there is a relationship and factors that may moderate or exacerbate the relationship.
