Gaby Illingworth

MRes, PhD

Postdoctoral Research Assistant

I am a Postdoctoral Research Assistant in the Sleep and Circadian Neuroscience Institute (SCNi). My current research focuses on adolescent sleep, in particular school-based interventions aimed at promoting sleep health. I was one of the developers of ‘Teensleep’, a school-based sleep education programme. I worked on the Teensleep study which examined the impact of this programme on adolescent sleep, sleep knowledge and health-related quality of life.  

After studying Politics (BSc) at the University of Bristol, I had a career in publishing and marketing. I subsequently pursued my interest in psychology through a Graduate Diploma in Psychology, an MRes in Developmental Psychology, followed by a PhD in Psychology focusing on maternal mind-mindedness. My previous research roles include Clinical Studies Officer at the Institute of Psychiatry, King’s College London, and Research Associate at Oxford Brookes University.
