Do you have employees on shift work?  Do your employees work extended shifts?  Do shifts begin before 6 am?  How is their health impacted by that?  What new approaches are there to minimize the health affects of shift work? 

Dr. Celine Vetter operates the Circadian and Sleep Epidemiology Laboratory (CASEL) at CU Boulder.  Her research includes work in light, circadian rhythms, sleep, and health, as well as shift work, work hours, and health impacts.

Her lab uses large, observational data sets to query associations of circadian phenotypes, circadian misalignment, sleep, and work hours with health and longevity. Her work aims to identify modifiable risk factors in the realm of circadian and sleep research that can be leveraged for prevention strategies in real life settings.

Current interests include:

  1. Cardio-metabolic consequences of circadian misalignment and sleep deprivation
  2. Work hour characteristics, occupational safety, and health
  3. Effects of sleep, and the mismatch between chronotype and work hours on mood
  4. Quantification of light exposure in real life
  5. Circadian phenotyping
