Professor Simon Smith leads the Sleep and Health Group at ISSR, with the broad aim to bridge the biological and social sciences for community benefit.

His research team uses AI/ML to analyse accelerometry and other indicators of behavioural rhythmicity in natural settings to differentiate and understand sleep-wake and activity states.

Wrist-worn devices (including clinical, research, and consumer devices) can provide a high volume of meaningful data about everyday routines.

Professor Smith’s research team leads a study seeking to classify high frequency activities (e.g. on-road driving) from actigraphy using contemporary AI/ML approaches.
