Research summary

A major focus of her research work and clinical innovation has been the development of web-based interventions for common clinical problems, particularly sleep.

A major challenge has been that highly effective treatments, as demonstrated in clinical trials (RCTs), involve significant amounts of clinician time to administer and/or supervise. This increases the cost of treatment and limits the number of persons who may receive the intervention.

Her research has evaluated engagement, preferences, and outcomes in adults who have used web-based and telepsychology interventions. Additionally, she has examined the efficiency of service delivery using a stepped care model for common sleep disorders.
