My research concerns the family context of child development for neurotypical children and children with autism, and work and family issues for young and middle-aged adults. Specific studies have addressed the transition to parenthood; fathering; maternal employment; young adults’ work and family plans; marital quality, parenting, and child functioning; family sleep arrangements; sleep quality, parent-child interaction, and social and cognitive functioning among children and adolescents with autism.
