My broad research interests relate to the impact of sleep loss and circadian misalignment (e.g., shiftwork) on sleep and cognitive performance. I am also interested in the role of the human body clock (or the circadian timing system) in the development of disease and mental illnesses.

The amount of sleep adults need has once again come under the spotlight, with a recent Wall Street Journal article suggesting seven hours sleep is better than eight hours and the American Academy of Sleep Medicine drawing up guidelines surrounding sleep need.
