Prof Alice Gregory has had an interest in sleep and psychopathology since she was an undergraduate student at the University of Oxford (from which she graduated with a first class degree). Since this time, she has focused much of her career on understanding the concurrent and longitudinal associations between sleep and different aspects of psychopathology. Much of her work has taken a behavioural genetic perspective in order understand the aetiology of these associations. She has written over 100 peer reviewed articles on sleep or associated traits and published in some of the best journals in the field. She has received funding from multiple sources including the Dowager Countess Eleanor Peel Trust, The Leverhulme Trust, the Economic and Social Research Council and the British Academy.  She is currently corresponding editor for sleep for the JCPP. She excels in the public communication of science as a sleep expert for a digital parent education endeavour on infant and todder sleep supported by Johnson’s baby; and a member of the Q and A panel of experts for BBC Focus Magazine. Her articles written for the website The Conversation have been read over 300,000 times. Her first book Nodding Off: Sleep from cradle to grave, was published by Bloomsbury Sigma in June 2018 and she is currently working on her second book The Sleepy Pebble and Other Stories, to be published by Nobrow.
