Additional Information

Trained as an applied mathematician, Dr. Michael Rempe uses mathematical models and statistics to understand sleep, both in humans and in other mammals. Specifically, his work fits into three areas: 1) He performs statistical analyses to understand sleep, fatigue and performance in airline pilots; 2) He develops and analyzes mathematical models of neurobiology underlying sleep to understand mechanisms and to further quantify experimental results; 3) He performs data analysis and develops computational tools to complement experimental approaches.
