Research Interests

During my PhD work I studied the relationship between sleep and early neurocognitive development. The first study, was conducted at P&G in Frankfurt (Germany) and was a longitudinal study investigating habitual sleep (sleep over time). Infants were followed for half a year and their sleep was measured using actigraphs and sleep diaries. Their development was tracked using EEG, eye-tracking and developmental questionnaires. The results of this first study showed that a) a large range of sleep patterns in typically developing infants and b) little evidence for a strong association of sleep and parent-report and behavioural measures of development. However, sleep impacted brain measures of development.  

My second study used a custom-made NIRS-EEG headgear to examine what happens in infants brain during sleep and how that relates to measures of development. 

My PhD project is part of the INTERLEARN European Industrial Doctorate programme and it has received funding from the European Unions’s Horizon 2020 Research and Innovation Programme under the Maria Sklodowska-Curie Grant (Agreement no. 721895).
