Synopsis

Sleep disturbance and activity in Sri Lanka - prevalence and association with depression and metabolic syndrome
This PhD would involve working with the world’s largest study of sleep disturbance in a developing country. We are aiming to estimate the prevalence of subjective sleep problems and activity levels and validate these with actigraphy. Their contribution to a range of health outcomes will be evaluated in particular depression and metabolic syndrome. There is a possibility of extending this to a genetically informed twin study and/or of travel to Sri Lanka.
