Personal Statement

I am an internationally recognized expert in sleep, circadian rhythms and sleep disorders in aging. My research efforts focus on the causes, consequences and treatments of disturbed sleep, circadian rhythms and cognition in older adults. Some of my most current work focuses on improving the cognitive function of health older adults and in older adults with Mild Cognitive Impairment using growth hormone releasing hormone and improving the sleep and pain of osteoarthritis patients with comorbid insomnia using cognitive behavioral therapy.
