Kristen Knutson

Associate Professor of Neurology, Northwestern University

Kristen Knutson's research focuses on the association between sleep, circadian rhythms and cardiometabolic diseases, including diabetes, obesity and cardiovascular disease. I focus on “real world” assessments of habitual sleep patterns and perform detailed clinical measures of biomarkers of disease risk. In addition, my research examines whether sleep and circadian rhythms partially mediate socioeconomic and/or racial/ethnic health disparities.
