research overview

  • Prof. Wright's research has contributed to our understanding of the physiology of sleep and circadian rhythms in humans, explaining the health and safety consequences of sleep loss and circadian misalignment—such as metabolic dysregulation and impaired cognition—and applying that knowledge to improve public health and safety. His research also aims to test countermeasure and treatment strategies to promote optimal sleep, wakefulness, and health in a variety of circumstances in which sleep deprivation and circadian misalignment occur (e.g., insufficient sleep, shift work, jet lag, aging, insomnia, sustained and continuous work operations, space missions, and circadian rhythm sleep-wake disorders).
