Dr. Buxton's research examines the causes and health consequences of sleep deficiency. Successful aging is a central focus of this work. Ongoing interdisciplinary human studies involve sleep loss, aging, insomnia, and cardiometabolic risk, as well as health disparities.

Dr. Buxton is a member of the Work, Family, and Health Network and the Harvard site led by Professor Lisa Berkman, Director of the Harvard University Pop Center. Completed and upcoming studies use objective measures of health including assays of dried blood spots and ambulatory sleep assessments to characterize health in large samples, and the efficacy of randomized, multi-site, workplace interventions. Dr. Buxton leads the Biomarker and Sleep Core for the Work, Family and Health Study. Dr. Buxton also serves as an Investigator and on the Internal Advisory Board of the Harvard School of Public Health Center for Work, Health, and Well-being .

After earning a B.S. in Behavioral Neuroscience from the University of Pittsburgh and a stint as a small business owner, Dr. Buxton earned a doctoral degree in Neuroscience from Northwestern University, Evanston, Illinois, working with Professors Eve Van Cauter and Fred Turek. He obtained post-doctoral training in sleep and endocrinology with Dr. Van Cauter at the University of Chicago.

Dr. Buxton co-founded the National Postdoctoral Association, a member-driven organization that provides a unique, national voice for postdoctoral scholars. In the Harvard Division of Sleep Medicine, Dr. Buxton serves as Chair of the Education Committee.
