Lois JamesDr. Lois James is an assistant professor at the Washington State University College of Nursing and Sleep and Performance Research Center (SPRC). Her research focuses on the relationship between sleep, health, and performance in first responders, military personnel, nurses, and top tier athletes. She is particularly interested in how sleep disruption due to shift work and extended work hours lead to negative health outcomes and performance deficits.

Through understanding the prevalence and impact of sleep deprivation and circadian disruption within these populations Dr. James creates fatigue management strategies to help build resilience and reduce the risk of performance deficits and chronic health issues.
