David Reichenberger is a doctoral candidate in Biobehavioral Health. His research focuses on the interplay of sleep and circadian rhythms with health-risk behaviors, such as alcohol use. Specifically, David is interested in examining the reciprocal relationship of alcohol use with inadequate sleep within individuals across time and aims to evaluate the effectiveness of sleep as an intervention target to prevent or buffer alcohol use behaviors.
