Description of project
I will be looking into the effects of light on the biological clock in humans. More specifically, I will take part in different projects investigating 1) the effects of light on thermoregulation and mental performances and 2) the quantification of photoreceptor contribution to circadian entrainment. This will then lead to the development of a light source prototype with optimized light spectra aimed to enhance context and time specific demands (e.g. shift work).
The BioClock Consortium is funded by the NWA-ORC programme of the Dutch Research Council (NWO; project number 1292.19.077).
