A world-renowned expert on adolescent sleep, Dr. Caskardon's current research efforts include laboratory and field-based studies examining the behavior of adolescents when they are confronted with changing school schedules, demands of part-time employment, or obligations to organized sports. Ongoing fundamental laboratory research examines the phase, period, and amplitude of circadian rhythms in adolescents as a function of pubertal stage.
