Dr. Michael Grandner is a licensed clinical psychologist, Director of the Sleep and Heath Research Program at the University of Arizona, and Director of the Behavioral Sleep Medicine Clinic at the Banner-University Medical Center in Tucson, AZ. His work focuses on translational sleep research and Behavioral Sleep Medicine, including studies of sleep as a domain of health behavior and the development and implementation of behavioral interventions for insufficient sleep and sleep disorders. Specific areas of focus include: (1) Downstream cardiovascular, metabolic, and behavioral health outcomes associated with habitual sleep duration and/or insufficient sleep, (2) Upstream social, behavioral, and biological determinants of habitual sleep duration, insufficient sleep, and poor sleep quality, and (3) Development and implementation of behavioral interventions for sleep as a domain of health behavior.
