Krista M. Brumley is associate professor of sociology at Wayne State University. She focuses on gender, work-family, and work organizations in the U.S. and Mexico. Her current research examines how U.S. workplace conditions impact employee work-family conflict, health and well-being, and relationships. She is the principal investigator for a NSF RAPID grant that uses mixed methods (surveys and interviews) to assess how work, family, and health among dual-income couples have changed within the context of COVID-19. Her project on gender and work uses qualitative interviews with women and men who hold managerial and professional positions in the automotive industry to analyze work-family conflict and career advancement. Her research in Mexico centered on analyzing gendered organizational change post-NAFTA.
She has published on these topics in Sociological Spectrum, Gender & Society, Gender, Work and Organizations, the Journal of Family Issues, and the Journal of Contemporary Ethnography.
She received her PhD in Sociology in 2004 from Tulane University. She also has a Master's of Public Health from Tulane University, and earned her BA in Political Science from SUNY-Oswego.
