PhD, MSc, MA
Honorary Senior Research Fellow
I am an Honorary Senior Research Fellow in Sleep Medicine at the Sleep and Circadian Neuroscience Institute (SCNi). My work within the institute focuses on the effectiveness and use of digital treatment for insomnia, such as digital cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT), and the effects beyond sleep, such as mental health and cognition.
In addition, I work as an Assistant Professor at the department of Epidemiology of the Erasmus MC University Medical Centre, Rotterdam, the Netherlands, where I am the principal investigator for Psychiatric Epidemiology in the Rotterdam Study.
My background is in psychology (BSc, MSc) and epidemiology (MSc, PhD). During my PhD, titled ‘Neuropsychiatric studies on sleep and 24-hour activity rhythms: a population-based approach’, I have studied the organisation of 24-hour rhythms and sleep in relation to depression, anxiety and cognition in a large cohort of middle-aged and elderly persons.
My position at the University of Oxford was funded by Big Health Ltd.
