Research Interests

Currently, I am working with Professor Neville Blampied and Dr Karyn France from the Canterbury Sleep Programme. My most recent completed research was a pilot prevention study for infant sleep disturbance. I am also involved in the Sleep Arm of the Primary Prevention of Rapid Weight Gain In Early Childhood Study (Longitudinal study, Dept Women’s & Children’s Health, University of Otago).
