Background and activities
In my PhD at the Centre for Elite Sports Research, I am investigating the influence of stress loads (i.e. mental strain, training load, menstrual cycle in women) on sleep patterns / recovery in athletes. Data is collected in an ecologically valid manner with unobtrusive measures of sleep over prolonged time periods, which allows us to gain insight into the typical functioning of athletes in realistic circumstances.
