Dr. Hall’s research program bridges the traditionally independent fields of behavioral medicine and sleep medicine. Her research focuses on the pathways through which psychological and social factors affect sleep and their downstream consequences to health and functioning, with an emphasis on accelerated aging, health disparities, and cardiometabolic disease risk. Passionate about training future generations of sleep and circadian scientists and clinicians, Dr. Hall has mentored numerous medical and graduate students, post-doctoral fellows, and junior faculty. She serves as Co-Director of the University of Pittsburgh Center for Sleep and Circadian Science and its Translational Research Training in Sleep Medicine Program and is President of the Academy of Behavioral Medicine Research.
