I am an associate professor in neuroscience. I have published more than 150 scientific articles. Work from my sleep lab has uncovered several mechanisms through which sleep-disrupting conditions increase the risk for weight gain, type 2 diabetes, and Alzheimer's disease. For example, we demonstrated that men with chronic sleep disturbances have an increased risk of developing Alzheimer's disease later in life. According to the August 2021 data-update for "Updated science-wide author databases of standardized citation indicators" using standardized information on citations, h-index, co-authorship adjusted hm-index, citations to papers in different authorship positions and a composite indicator (Baas, Jeroen; Boyack, Kevin; Ioannidis, John P.A. (2021), “August 2021 data-update for "Updated science-wide author databases of standardized citation indicators"”, Mendeley Data, V3, doi: 10.17632/btchxktzyw.3), I am among the top 2% of scientists in 2020 across all disciplines.
