Research Interests

My research interests reflect the dynamic interplay of behaviors across the 24 hours: sleep, sedentary behavior, and physical activity, and collectively how these behaviors can be harnessed for health promotion. My work focuses on the measurement of these behaviors using device-based measures, interventions that singly or in combination target these behaviors, and the environments in which we live, work, and play that impact these behaviors.
