Dr. Buxtons research primarily focuses on
1) the causes of chronic sleep deficiency in the workplace, home, and society, and
2) the health consequences of chronic sleep deficiency, especially cardiometabolic outcomes, and the physiologic and social mechanisms by which these outcomes arise. Successful aging is a central focus of this work. Ongoing interdisciplinary human studies involve sleep loss, aging, and insomnia, as well as health disparities.
