Kristen Shockley’s main area of research focuses on understanding the intersection of employees’ work and family lives. She previously served as an associate professor of psychology at the City University of New York and, most recently, the University of Georgia. She serves as an associate editor for the Journal of Applied Psychology, which is widely regarded as one of the top journals in the field of organizational behavior.
Under the broad umbrella of work-family issues, she is particularly interested in a) how organizational initiatives, such as flexible scheduling and remote work, help employees manage competing demands, b) how experiences of work-family conflict affect physiological health outcomes, and c) the gender dynamics within dual-earner couples who are attempting to juggle family and two careers.
