I received my PhD from QUT, Brisbane in 2017. My thesis examined the effects of environmental light and sleep on child health, specifically weight status. After graduating I received further research training as a postdoctoral fellow at the National Institutes of Health. Here I studied the proteomic and genomic changes following traumatic brain injury and the effects of sleep on recovery . I am now working at UQ as a Research Fellow looking at sleep and health across the lifespan.
