Stephen's main research interest is in clarifying how sleep-wake behaviors, across the full 24-hour cycle, influence the biological mechanisms which underlie late-life depression's pathogenesis and consequences. Stephen is also an active sleep epidemiologist, primarily using actigraphy to objectively define sleep-wake phenotypes, and better understanding their causes and consequences.
