I am a postdoctoral researcher at the Sleep and Circadian Neuroscience Institute (SCNi). My work here focuses on sleep and circadian rhythm disruption and its role in cognition and disorders of the brain.
My doctoral work examined how mechanisms of sleep support healthy brain functioning and plasticity, particularly associated with learning and memory. For this I used a range of converging measures including EEG, brain imaging, actigraphy, and cognitive measures.
I have also been involved in clinical work to assess the impact of sleep quality and how it affects the recovery process during neurological rehabilitation.
