Research Interests

Broadly, I am interested in insomnia, circadian rhythms, and sleep monitoring technology. My current research projects include 1) using smart lighting systems to rapidly entrain circadian rhythms to adjust to shift-work; 2) testing novel methods for the assessment and treatment of sleep disorders using sleep trackers; 3) exploring individual-level sleep need and its importance for the treatment of insomnia; and 4) exploring the role of circadian rhythms in "non-circadian" sleep disorders.
