Work group

Molecular Chronobiology and Teaching

Scientific Interests:

I am interested in the effects of sleep, chronotype and time of day on (school, working, physical, cognitive) performance; challenges offered by modern society (school and working hours, artificial light pollution, jet lag) on the human biological clock; interplay between psychology, sleep, chronobiology and sport in relation to performance and health. My work so far has focused on the influence of chronotype and time of day on school performance and on developing strategies (light interventions) to decrease social jetlag (the mismatch between the circadian and social clocks).
