Tuesday, February 11 at 2:30 p.m.

I am a licensed Clinical Psychologist, in the position of Instructor in Psychiatry at the Perelman School of Medicine at the University of Pennsylvania. The majority of my time involves designing and running research studies, though my week sometimes includes clinical work and administrative duties. My job is fairly typical for a junior faculty at a major research institution -- writing grants and papers, running and supervising studies, etc. My work focuses on sleep and health -- how poor sleep can lead to cardiovascular and metabolic disease, and also how social and environmental factors may lead to poor sleep.
I am a member of the Behavioral Sleep Medicine Program, in the Department of Psychiatry of the University of Pennsylvania, and also a member of the Center for Sleep and Circadian Neurobiology. Penn is a well-known, research-intensive university, and the Center for Sleep at Penn represents one of the top sleep research centers in the world.
