Biography

 As a child neurologist and sleep physician, I am particularly aware of the importance of sleep for children with neurological disease. Sleep and circadian rhythm dysfunction are extremely common in neurodevelopmental disorders and have been suggested as risk factors for autism, bipolar disorder and depression, and several forms of cancer. Motivated by my clinical experience, my research seeks to understand the biological relationships between the circadian clock and diseases of the developing brain.
