A.J. Schwichtenberg, PhD
Sleep & Autism @Purdue University
Dr. A.J. Schwichtenberg is an Associate Professor at Purdue University in the College of Health and Human Sciences. With appointments in the departments of Human Development and Family Studies, Psychological Sciences, and Speech, Language, and Hearing Sciences, her line of work assesses how sleep is developmentally consequential for children with autism and their families. She directs the Sleep and Developmental Studies Laboratory and was the inaugural Co-director of the Purdue Autism Research Center. Building on her diverse postdoctoral training at the Medical Investigation of Neurodevelopmental Disorders (MIND) Institute at the University of California Davis, Dr. Schwichtenberg applies a developmental psychopathology approach to the study of sleep in children experiencing typical and atypical development. Her research includes behavioral, genetic, and contextual elements of sleep in autism with a recent focus on how sleep dysregulation may share a mechanistic pathway with autism.
