The ability to obtain sufficient, restorative sleep is greater among those from higher socioeconomic backgrounds as compared to those from lower socioeconomic backgrounds. My research program explores the socioeconomic and structural barriers to sleep in vulnerable populations, such as individuals on shift work schedules, communities of color, and low income areas. In addition, I employ mixed methods to explore sleep differences by demographic and socioeconomic variables, then design interventions using health communication, dissemination, and health promotion techniques, theories, and methods to design interventions that aim to promote sleep among underserved groups. In this research, you will learn about community-engaged research. You will cultivate skills in literature reviews, academic writing, data analysis, and peer review. You will also develop an Individual Development Plan (IDP) to guide your career at Harvard and beyond.

PMC Citations indicate the number of times the publication was cited by articles in PubMed Central, and the Altmetric score represents citations in news articles and social media. (Note that publications are often cited in additional ways that are not shown here.) Fields are based on how the National Library of Medicine (NLM) classifies the publication's journal and might not represent the specific topic of the publication. Translation tags are based on the publication type and the MeSH terms NLM assigns to the publication. Some publications (especially newer ones and publications not in PubMed) might not yet be assigned Field or Translation tags.) Click a Field or Translation tag to filter the publications.
