Academic interests: 

Kelly studies the implications of work experiences (e.g., conditions, policies, practices) for individual, family, and organizational well-being. The majority of her research focuses on how parents’ work experiences influence parent-child interactions, family time, and children’s health and well-being. To examine emotional transmission processes within the family, she uses intensive repeated measures, including daily diaries and ecological momentary assessments.
