Personal profile

My research investigates how adolescent sleep impacts cognition. I am particularly interested in the role of learning and memory, as well as mental health, on the relationship between sleep and academic attainment during adolescence. My main research project involves polysomnography, a non-invasive sleep monitoring technique in which sensors are attached to participants’ heads and faces to monitor their sleep architecture. This project investigates how sleep architecture may change between school nights compared to holidays, and the implication this may have for learning and memory using a novel-word learning paradigm.
