Dr Alice Gregory BA PhD

I am interested in the development and co-occurrence of sleep problems, anxiety and depression throughout the life course.

In order to examine temporal relationships, I have explored the associations between these phenotypes in epidemiological samples assessed longitudinally (e.g. the Dunedin Multidisciplinary Study of Health and Development).

The utilization of large twin datasets, such as the Twins Early Development Study, has allowed me to examine the magnitude of genetic and environmental influences on these difficulties and their associations. Further questions – such as those concerning sex differences and the influence of rater on genetic and environmental estimates - have also been addressed using twin samples.

Recently, I have developed an interest in cognitive psychology and have borrowed ideas from research focusing upon cognitive styles linked to sleep problems, anxiety and depression in adults, and have examined their relevance to children. Much of this research has been conducted using genetically sensitive datasets, allowing integration of different approaches.

My research is conducted in collaboration with researchers from a number of different institutions, including the Institute of Psychiatry (UK); the University of Pittsburgh (USA); the University of Otago (NZ); and the University of California, Berkeley (USA).
