Physician Scientist Training Award
Sarah Morrison Student Research Award

During my sleep medicine fellowship training at Brigham & Women's Hospital, I was awarded the Physician Scientist Training Award from the American Academy of Sleep Medicine to study the effects of interns' work hours and sleep deprivation on safety. As part of the Harvard Work Hours, Health, and Safety Group (HWHHSG), my research focused on the impact of work hours, sleep deficiency and circadian disruption on health and safety outcomes in safety sensitive occupations.

My experience in studying sleep deprivation and injury risk in resident physicians has provided me with a solid foundation to further study the health risks of sleep deprivation across other occupational groups, including transportation workers, athletes, active members of the military and veterans, as well as educators. I have worked with these groups to provide practical tips to optimize performance and safety. I also have experience in developing consumer and medical sleep tracking devices so that sleep and performance (ex: cognitive, athletic, etc) can be improved for the general public. I am passionate about wellness, including the intersection of sleep, nutrition, and exercise.

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.
