Prof. Knoester's research focuses on the effects of children on parents’ lives and on the patterns and implications of fathering, specifically. Recently, he has been comprehensively analyzing the patterns and implications of paternity leaves, with Richard Petts and Brianne Pragg. This work has been published in Social Forces, Journal of Marriage and Family, Sex Roles, Journal of Family Issues, and Community, Work, & Family. He is also the principal investigator of the National Sports and Society Survey (NSASS), a landmark survey that focuses on patterns of sports involvement and their links to well-being, and is transitioning into studying sports and society issues.
