I am a broadly interested neuroscientist, looking to make an impact in public health.

During my PhD I will conduct research into personalized sleep and nutritional interventions for shift workers. Shift work is associated with a diverse set of detrimental effect. During this project I will investigate whether our sleep and/or nutritional intervention can ameliorate the negative consequences of shift work. I will take an interdisciplinary approach and look both at biomarkers, cognition, and wellbeing. I hope this research can contribute to better ways of dealing with shift work, so the circadian rhythms in shift workers will be less disturbed.
