Postdoctoral Research Fellow
Jennifer completed her PhD at the University of Melbourne under the supervision of John Trinder and Amy Jordan. Her project investigated whether arousal in obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) predisposes to further obstructive events on return to sleep.
Her expertise is in sleep disordered breathing and sleep and breathing physiology. She has worked as both a sleep scientist and research assistant for over 5 years.
