Research interests

Interactions between alcohol and other drug use and sleep and mental health outcomes including shift work and circadian rhythm disturbances


I have a keen interest in promoting science and education to the wider community. I have:

• Given invited talks to clinicians and technicians on sleep, and developed and disseminated a low-literacy “healthy sleep” tool used in numerous Eastern Health clinics.

• Delivered 3 day-long “sleep workshops” to up-skill the alcohol and other drug workforce. These have trained >100 staff.

• Worked with CSIRO’s Scientist in Schools Program to engage students with science.

• Had my work featured in both national and international media, and recorded podcassts relevant to sleep and alcohol use as part of Sleep Hub.
