Conklin Receives NSF Research Funding

The area congratulates graduate student Erin Marie Conklin on her recent Doctoral Dissertation Research Award from the National Science Foundation (NSF). The project, Efficacy of Self-control/Self-regulation Training Interventions to Improve Sleep Habits: Impact on Employee Fatigue, will investigate the efficacy of self-control and self-regulation training programs that are targeted towards building skills for individuals to better manage their sleep schedules. Development of these skills, in turn, is expected to reduce the frequency of situations of inadequate sleep at work and school.
