About the Presenter
Dr. Sarah Jay is a Senior Post-Doctoral Research Fellow at the Appleton Institute, CQUniversity. She completed her PhD in 2007; since then she’s worked in New Zealand and Australia conducting research broadly focused on the impact of working hours on safety and health. Her particular interest in the role of sleep has led her to conduct field research in a variety of workplaces where variable shift working patterns are common, including aviation, rail, the maritime, emergency services and healthcare industries. She has also conducted a number of large-scale laboratory studies answering questions about the time-course of recovery from sleep deprivation, the suitability of sleepiness counter-measures and the impact of specific working conditions on sleep and performance, such as on-call/stand-by and moderate altitude.
