Researcher into sleep, neuroscience and learning
I was born in San Francisco and had a very unusual life in the US until I arrived in the UK at 20. Then it all got a bit pedestrian. I have been called England's best-known innovator in education- probably because I keep doing it, like at bad habit.
Now I am an Honorary Clinical Research Associate for the Sleep and Circadian Neuroscience Institute at the University of Oxford (bit of a long title that). My real purpose is to change education starting times to much later, to improve the timing patterns of learning with Spaced Learning, to bring university courses to students in schools, and to help make education a science.
We can improve the lives of our children: better health, mental health, and learning- and the same for society as a whole . Worth fighting for, working for, being passionate about making a difference.
