Ethan Rothstein

Undergraduate institution: Tufts University

My research interests primarily lie within the area of the work and family. While I have done a fair amount of research on work-family conflict (how work and family demands come into conflict with one another), my main focus has been on work-family enrichment (how resources from one role can help improve outcomes in the other). In my master’s thesis, I examined the processes through which people experience family-to-work enrichment on a daily basis. I found that when people receive support from their romantic partners, they tend to start the next day with greater levels of positive affect and self-efficacy, and in turn are more likely to engage in proactive work behaviors that day. Beyond work-family, I am also interested in research on psychological recovery experiences, such as psychological detachment and relaxation, and the implications that they have for employee well-being.
