Her program of research focuses on three overarching themes: 1) Sleep in Children (with various acute and chronic conditions and Neurodevelopmental disorders [NDD]); 2) Sleep and Mental Health (specifically depressive and anxiety symptomatology); and 3) Sleep and health-related behaviours (e.g., physical activity and eating behaviours).
