As a researcher, I am motivated by what Lenski (1966) highlighted as the central question of inequality: who gets what, and why? This question has driven my research on discrimination in organizations, labor market inequalities, household spending on children, and the division of household labor. In each case, some scarce resource – jobs, earnings, money for children, or time – is distributed unequally. My research has focused on the causes and consequences of inequality in time and money.
