Steven Lockley Ph.D
Steven W. Lockley, Ph.D., is a Neuroscientist in the Division of Sleep and Circadian Disorders at Brigham and Women’s Hospital, an Associate Professor of Medicine in the Division of Sleep Medicine, Harvard Medical School, USA and a VC Fellow at the University of Surrey, UK. With over 25 years of research experience in circadian rhythms and sleep, Dr. Lockley is a specialist in how light affects human physiology. He has studied the effects of light on the circadian pacemaker extensively including the role of light wavelength, timing, duration and pattern. This work has led to development of ‘smart’ lighting applications designed to improve alertness, safety and productivity, and translation of the physiological effects of light into architecture and design. Dr Lockley will discuss the vital role of light for maintaining normal circadian rhythms, and how to use indoor light to help daytime alertness and nighttime sleep.
