She is also co-director of the NBER's program on Children and the Editor in Chief of the Journal of Human Resources.

In particular, she focuses on the roles played by health insurance and access to medical care, domestic violence, exposure to environmental toxins, the role of stress, discrimination in the labor market, job training and poor children's greater interaction with the juvenile justice system in explaining why the children of poor mothers are more likely to grow up to be poor themselves.
