My areas of interest include the integration of technical advances in health measures in survey and population-based research and the exploration of technical advances in this field. Additionally, I am interested in the role of sleep in the development of chronic conditions, specifically metabolic disturbances, diabetes and other cardiovascular diseases.
I currently oversee data collection on the National Survey of Family Growth (NSFG), a cross-sectional population-based research study sponsored by the National Center for Health Statistics (NCHS). My dissertation research is focused on the measurement of sleep in population-based surveys and the bi-directional relationship between poor quality sleep and incident diabetes when controlling for other risk factors.
