Christin Munsch is an Assistant Professor of Sociology at the University of Connecticut who specializes in family, work and occupations, gender, social psychology, and quantitative methods. The overarching goal of her research is to identify the ways in which contemporary, dual-earner families organize interaction based on a traditional, breadwinner-homemaker model and the consequences of this mismatch for individuals, relationships, and the reproduction of inequality. She has published her work in a number of peer-reviewed journals including American Sociological Review, Social Forces, and the Journal of Marriage and Family.
