Curriculum Vitae

Ph.D., University of Maryland, 2003

Dr. Nomaguchi’s research interests include work and family, gender, parenthood, parents and children, families and health, and the life course. She explores what it means to be a parent in contemporary U.S. society and how social and life contexts influence individual parents’ ability to do the best job of raising their children. She also seeks to understand how U.S. adults today integrate two contradicting life goals---personal achievement in the world of work and relationships with others in the family and the community. In doing so, she pays special attention to the roles of social, cultural, and life contexts in shaping the opportunities and constraints that individuals encounter, such as gender, marital status, socioeconomic status, and race/ethnicity.
