Research Interests:

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 cardiometabolic disease risk. She has evaluated these relationships in diverse populations across the lifespan, focusing mainly on mid- to adults at increased risk for cardiometabolic disease including caregivers, women during the menopausal transition, individuals with sleep and psychiatric disorders, and adults affected by racial/social disparities. Dr. Hall has been instrumental in developing methods to evaluate these relationships, including the use of ambulatory polysomnography, wrist actigraphy, and analysis of autonomic function during sleep as measured by heart rate variability. Moreover, she has developed methods for evaluating indices of nocturnal physiology that lie in the causal pathway linking sleep with cardiovascular disease. A widely-sought mentor and educator, Dr. Hall is a member of the graduate training faculty in the School of Medicine and the Department of Psychology. She has trained and mentored undergraduate, graduate and medical students, post-doctoral fellows, and junior faculty in diverse components of clinical and translational sleep medicine, with an emphasis on the sleep-health relationship. Dr. Hall serves as key faculty on two NHLBI-funded T32 training grants (HL82610 [D. Buysse, PI], HL007560 [K. Matthews, PI]) and has mentored numerous trainees and junior faculty on projects and important manuscripts in this area (see publications marked by * below).
