Her 2006 ASA Rose Monograph, Changing Rhythms of American Family Life (co-authored with John Robinson and Melissa Milkie) won book awards from both the Population and the Family Sections of the American Sociological Association. Bianchi has also written extensively on family change and is currently is working on projects investigating intergenerational caregiving, using vignettes to assess attitudes toward intergenerational co-residence. She has a newly-funded project on geographic proximity of adult children and aging parents and is working on a new book on intergenerational ties later in life.
