Research Interests

I am interested in the probing the genetics underlying sleep and circadian rhythms in order to elucidate novel genes and pathways underlying circadian regulation.  These findings will open potential new avenues of therapeutics for rare circadian rhythms disorders, increase our understanding of the basic mechanisms of circadian biology, and open new avenues for treatment of more common circadian rhythm associated chronic diseases.
