Dr. Kimberly Fox

Associate Professor of Sociology
Hart Hall, Room 231

BA, Augustana College
MA, The George Washington University
PhD, Loyola University

Dr. Fox is a sociologist with interests in work, family and gender and how single adults and individuals living alone contend with the multiple responsibilities of work, family and community. Trained in both quantitative and qualitative methods, including survey design and qualitative interviewing, she has been teaching at Bridgewater State University since 2012. Before joining the BSU faculty, she managed the research relationship and activities at a Fortune 500 company for the interdisciplinary Work, Family, and Health Study. She also led the qualitative data collection and analysis for an NSF-funded ADVANCE IT-Catalyst grant investigating the work-life policies of full- and part-time faculty in a teaching-intensive environment and directed the initial stages of the Work and Well-being Initiative at the Harvard Center for Population and Development Studies. Dr. Fox recently received a Fulbright U.S. Scholar Program award to Sweden, where she will complete research at Stockholm University’s Swedish Institute for Social Research as part of a Cross-cultural Examination of the Social Policy Impacts on Adults Living Alone. She loves working with students on understanding how social research is conducted and how social inequality shapes our experiences. Dr. Fox regularly teaches classes on research methods and data analysis along with work, family, and inequality.
