Research Summary

The focus of my research is sleep and cognitive development in typically developing infants as well as infants with epilepsy. In particular, I am interested to understand how individual differences of sleep or cognition early in life relate to trajectories over the first year and beyond.

I am mainly involved in two longitudinal studies:

EPIPEG (Epilepsy in Infancy: relating Phenotype to Genotype)
In particular, I am interested to understand the mechanisms that drive variability in cognitive outcomes of infants with early-onset epilepsy. The EPIPEG project is an epidemiological study, looking at the association of clinical, neuropsychological, and behavioural variables.

Sleep and cognition in the first year of life (PhD project)
Here I am mainly interested in the association between early sleep variables and cognitive trajectories in the first year of life using a multi-modal approach (eye-tracking, actigraphy, questionnaires, sleep diaries, and direct observation).
