Postdoctoral researcher, Harvard University

I am a postdoctoral researcher in the Sleep and Cognition Laboratory at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center, Harvard Medical School. I am interested in all aspects of sleep research, and am currently investigating the role sleep plays in the consolidation of memories, and the neural mechanisms underlying this process.

I also have an interest in 'anomalous sleep experiences', particularly the phenomena of sleep paralysis and lucid dreaming.
