Dr. Grzywacz is an interdisciplinary family scientist internationally recognized for his research on work and family, and its implications for individual health and well-being. His research is consistently recognized as among the "Best of the Best" in work-family research. He has provided expert consultation on the Singapore National Study of Work-Life Harmony, he has given expert commentary on the health implications of workplace flexibility for congressional briefings, his expertise has been sought out by top international employers, and he is a standing member of a National Institutes of Health scientific review panel. He is also an editorial board member for three scientific journals.

In addition to his work on the MIDUS project, Dr. Grzywacz directs a comprehensive research portfolio comprised of multiple R01 and R21 projects funded by the Eunice Kennedy Shriver National Institute for Child Health and Development and the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health. The focus of this research program is the health-related implications of everyday work and family life. His research projects study unique work arrangements, like nonstandard work schedules and immigrant Latino farmworkers, and it considers outcomes for both adults and children. Outcomes of primary interest across his research portfolio include health behaviors (e.g., physical activity, eating behavior, dietary intake), child behavioral health (e.g., internalizing and externalizing problems), and adult health-related quality of life. Dr Grzywacz has published over 120 peer-reviewed scientific articles appearing in top-ranked discipline-specific and interdisciplinary journals such as the American Journal of Public Health, Journal of Occupational Health Psychology, Journal of Occupational and Environmental Medicine, Social Science and Medicine, Journal of Health and Social Behavior, and Journal of Marriage and Family.
