  • Special Interests

    My research revolves around the consequences of Sleep Apnea and methods to improve response to treatment. I have several grants examining the utility of behavioral approaches to therapy that might improve adherence as well as the cognitive cerebrovascular consequences of Sleep Apnea. I also have students studying insomnia in medical conditions.
