  • Special Interests

    Clinical and Research Interests

    I have research and clinical interests in the nature, classification and management of insomnia disorders. My basic research interest pertain to developing understanding of the causative and perpetuating mechanisms involved in insomnia as well as ascertaining effective methods for documenting the daytime impairments associated with this condition. I also have interest in ascertaining new methods for classifying or subtyping insomnia and identifying reliable insomnia phenotypes. Finally I have interest in developing and improving our current insomnia management strategies.
