Michaela is a PhD researcher at the University of Warwick, specialising in sleep and self-harm during adolescence. Her research seeks to explore the mechanisms that may explain the relationship between sleep and self-harm through utilising large birth cohort datasets. This methodology allows for the tracking of various physical, socio-emotional, behavioural, and cognitive development which may be associated with sleep, and is a unique resource to explore risk factors and prospective associations in large sample sizes, at a populational level. Doing this, she hopes to provide practitioners and researchers insight into how different sleep parameters impact self-harm by untangling the complex web of factors in these associations. Alongside this, Michaela also works as a Young Person Practitioner at Action for Children where she can regularly apply her research findings into practice, and her practice can inform her research.
