Personal profile

Research Biography

I am Senior Research Fellow in the field of sleep health, within the College of Medicine and Public Health at Flinders University. My PhD work examined physiological responses to insufficient sleep in both human laboratory and field environments. I subsequently completed a Masters of Science in Medicine (Clinical Epidemiology) as I have a keen interest in Sleep Eidemiology.

My research program aims to improve understanding of how sleep, sleep disorders and health are related in population-level data, and identify novel targets for intervention in members of the community impacted by poor sleep - from shift workers to patients living with chronic illness.

To do this, I am based at the Flinders Health and Medical Research Institute as part of the Adelaide Institute of Sleep Health, where I work in multidisciplinary teams with existing longitudinal cohorts, exploring a variety of health outcomes and their relationship with sleep. 

I am particularly interested in sub-groups within the population who are vulnerable to poor sleep either by choice, or as a consequence of unavoidable circumstances inculding work (e.g. shift workers) and personal (e.g. health reasons) factors. I love working with employers and workplaces with a focus on improving sleep health in their employers as this gives us a real opportunity to apply the research we are doing to make meaningful impact for the community.

My currrent projects include a longitudinal study of commencing shift work careers in paramedics; using population data to better understand prevalence of sleep disorders in shift working populations; and finding better ways to identify the financial and health impact of poor sleep in working Australians.

I supervise Honours, Masters and PhD candidates from a diverse range of backgrounds including:

-nursing (1 PhD candidate, principal supervisor),

-paramedicine (2 Honours candidates and 1 Masters, all as principal supervisor), and 

-public health/epidemiology (1 PhD candidate, principal supervisor) and

-psychology (1 PhD candidate, principal supervisor).
