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 objective methods, interventions that singly or in combination target these behaviors, and the environments in which we live, work, and play that impact these behaviors.
