My research has spanned the broad topic of behavioral health. Currently, I am involved with Dr. Kathryn Lee's studies of sleep disturbance, fatigue, and other symptoms in a variety of populations, including new parents, adults living with HIV/AIDS, and shiftworkers. I use quantitative methods to test the effectiveness of behavioral interventions for improving sleep and to identify predictors and outcomes of sleep disturbance and other symptoms. My earlier research was focused in the area of pediatric psychology, as well as HIV prevention among women and adolescents.
