Research Interests

Muzi is interested in life experiences and parenting practices of mothers (e.g. mothers with mood disorders, deployed mothers, and single mothers by choice) and its association with child adjustment. Muzi's current research focuses on families of single mothers by choice who obtain motherhood through assisted reproductive technologies (ART). Muzi has interest in both quantitative and qualitative research methods.
