I have been an active researcher in the area of sleep in psychiatric disorders for the past seven years. During my graduate school training with Dr. Allison Harvey, I examined the relationship between sleep and mood in individuals with and without psychiatric disorders. I also served as a therapist for three years on an NIMH-funded clinical trial of CBT for insomnia. My current research, under the mentorship of Dr. Thomas Neylan, focuses on the interrelationships among sleep, health (e.g., emotional eating, exercise, metabolism), and psychiatric symptoms in PTSD, as well as behavioral interventions for these issues.
