There are challenges and joys of a dual-career life and Jennifer Petriglieri explores through rigourous research how couples can make their lives work for them.

Jennifer has spent over a decade researching how people’s close relationships shape who they become professionally and personally, and for the past 6 years she has been studying the lives of dual-career couples.
