Work, Family, Health, Policy, Age and the Gendered Life Course.
Prof. Moen investigates organizational work-time policies and practices, employee time strains, psychological and physical health outcomes; and the work-family interface to make it more compatible with the rest of life. She co-directs (with Prof. Erin Kelly) the Flexible Work and Well-Being Center, part of a larger NIH-funded research network initiative studying ways to promote individual and family health and life quality by increasing the degree of flexibility around the clockworks of paid work. Prof. Moen also engages in research on gender, couples, and time use, as well as work, retirement and volunteering in the life course.
