Barbara Galland heads the paediatric sleep research group within the Department of Women’s & Children’s Health. She has published more than 100 scientific research and review articles, mainly in the field of child sleep health within a multi-disciplinary programme of research that investigates the role of sleep and sleep disturbance in a range of health outcomes. More specifically, her research interests include studying the effects of sleep and breathing disorders in children and adolescents on behaviour, cognition and academic performance.

Other research focuses on the role that sleep plays in overweight and obesity, sleep related disturbances in children with Type 1 diabetes, and the biological mechanisms underpinning Sudden Unexpected Death in Infancy. Studies of sleep disordered breathing and sleep measurement have contributed to many international collaborative research projects. She currently co-chairs the Paediatric Council of the Australasian Sleep Association and is on the editorial board of Sleep Medicine Reviews and Behavioral Sleep Medicine.
