Using psychobiological methods, objective sleep data, biological weight measurements, and twin designs, Dr. Breitenstein’s research concentrates on understanding genetic, environmental, and psychosocial factors that contribute to poor sleep, as well as associations between poor and inadequate sleep and various developmental outcomes across childhood and adolescence (e.g., weight indicators, stress physiology, academic achievement). Currently, she is also exploring how individual differences in cultural values and child temperament contribute to links between poor sleep, health, and academic outcomes in childhood and adolescence.
