02.14.23 | Sleep and Development in Youth: Sociocultural Considerations
Live Webinar ~ 12:00 - 1:00 PM EST
Mona El-Sheikh, Ph.D.
Leonard Peterson & Co., Inc. Professor
Department of Human Development and Family Studies
Mona El-Sheikh, Ph.D. is the Leonard Peterson & Co. Inc. Professor in the Department of Human Development and Family Science at Auburn University. Her multidisciplinary research program addresses child and adolescent development in the context of risk and has advanced a biopsychosocial approach for understanding adaptation and maladaptation. More specifically, her research examines multiple domains of development in youth in the context of family and socioecological (e.g., health disparities associated with poverty) risk. Of particular emphasis is the assessment of children's physiological and biological reactivity and regulation examined through sympathetic and parasympathetic nervous system activity and sleep-wake processes, which are considered primary mechanisms of risk and vulnerability/protective factors for trajectories of psychological adjustment, physical health, cognitive functioning, and academic achievement. Studying cohorts of children and their families over long periods, from childhood through adolescence to young adulthood, has revealed how these processes relate to developmental outcomes over time and provide insights into mitigating interventions. This work has been funded by the National Institutes of Health (NICHD and NHLBI), and the National Science Foundation.
