My areas of research include :
– The relationships between sleep and hormonal release in humans under various conditions, e.g. habitual conditions, total sleep deprivation, partial sleep restriction and time shifts.
– The health implications of sleep loss and circadian misalignment.
– The beneficial effects of sleep extension to revert the deleterious consequences of chronic sleep curtailment.
