Research Interests

Broadly, I am interested in insomnia, circadian rhythms, and sleep monitoring technology. My current research projects include 1) developing and validating novel technologies for monitoring sleep and circadian rhythms; 2) using consumer sleep technologies to manage insomnia and other sleep disorders; and 3) exploring individual-level sleep need and its importance for the treatment of insomnia.
