Dr. Jeremy Reynolds, Associate Professor of Sociology and Undergraduate Coordinator, has been at the University of Georgia since 2001. He received a Ph.D. in Sociology from the University of North Carolina - Chapel Hill in 2001. His specialty areas include work (especially work hours and work-family issues) and stratification. Dr. Reynolds's most recent research uses US data to examine how and why people's preferred and actual hours of work converge and diverge over time. He is particularly interested in the extent to which people eventually get the number of hours they prefer or come to prefer the hours they can get.
