I am a health psychology researcher primarily interested in the role sleep plays in the experience of mental health difficulties and the impact of sleep on wider health behaviours. My research aims to extend current knowledge of the relationship between sleep and mental health by examining two key areas; (1) research investigating how poor sleep might exert an effect on mental health by examining possible mechanisms of action; and (2) testing the effect of interventions designed to target problems sleeping on subsequent mental health and behaviour outcomes. I am also interested in implementing evidenced based interventions designed to improve sleep into routine health settings, and how we might make digital health interventions more efficient for patients and professionals.
