In addition to my private practice, I have a program of research at Stanford University. For many years I’ve explored ways in which sleep impacts mental health and mental health impacts sleep.  In particular, my research interests include: (1) hypersomnia and insomnia in psychiatric disorders; (2) sleep deprivation, recovery sleep and circadian rhythm disturbances in adolescent and adults; and (3) the relationship between sleep and illness course in unipolar and bipolar depression. My research and training has been supported by the National Institute of Health, the National Science Foundation, the Lucile Packard Foundation at Stanford and other organizations.
