Darlynn Rojo-Wissar



Darlynn Rojo-Wissar, PhD, MPH is a psychiatric epidemiologist and STAR T32-funded postdoctoral fellow at the Alpert Medical School of Brown University. The aim of her research is to examine the role of sleep and circadian rhythms in the development and exacerbation of poor mental and physical health outcomes across the lifespan, to inform intervention and prevention strategies. She is particularly interested in links of sleep and circadian rhythms with health in the context of early-life exposures (i.e., adverse childhood experiences, the child welfare system, and parent-child bonding/attachment), and investigating whether racial/ethnic differences and/or disparities in these associations exist. She received her BA in Psychology and MPH in Maternal and Child Health from the University of Arizona, and her PhD in Mental Health from the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health.
