Research Interests

Dr Wang's current research focuses on building statistical models to analyze data in sleep research. She is currently working on:

(1) building models to study the effects of different patterns of light exposure on observed circadian rhythms
(2) building models to study the effects of circadian rhythm, sleep and other factors on performance and alertness
(3) constructing an integrated database for the Division of Sleep Medicine at Brigham and Women's Hospital
