Dr. Enchautegui-de-Jesús investigates stressors related to low-wage jobs and work-family balance among women with children/adolescents at home. She is interested in identifying coping mechanisms and resources to deal with and buffer the impact of such stressors on individual and family well-being. To pursue these interests, she relies on quantitative and qualitative methods (e.g., surveys, focus groups, in-depth interviews). The goal of this research is to inform policies and interventions that could improve the quality of life of working poor families.
