Research Summary


My research focuses on investigating the relationship between sleep disturbances and posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD). 

Sleep disturbances are common in people with PTSD, and are often a key symptom in motivating patients to seek treatment. There is growing evidence that sleep disturbances may potentially play a role in the development and maintenance of PTSD, and may affect responses to treatment.  Of particular interest to this project is the hypothesis that disturbed sleep may be a key mechanism in PTSD, one I will investigate over the course of my DPhil.
