I am interested in sleep and its relation to cognitive and behaviour functioning across the lifespan. My work so far included children with developmental disorders such as Autism, Williams Syndrome, Down Syndrome and ADHD. However in the last few years I have developed an interest to examine the impact of sleep disturbances on individuals with prostate cancer, breast cancer and chronic pain.
In my lab, we use a multi-disciplinary approach to examine sleep in relation to cognitive, behavioural and academic abilities. Some of the methods include cognitive tests, biomarkers and behavioural tests.
