Dr Dwayne Mann

Dr Dwayne Mann is an early career researcher in biomedical engineering. His PhD bridged the gap between interventional physiology sleep studies and the clinical sleep environment by developing methods that estimate flow limitation and help further characterise obstructive sleep apnoea patient phenotype. While Dwayne is continuing to work in the engineering domain, he is also interested in reaching beyond sleep disordered breathing and helping to understand how sleep impacts more broadly upon health, particularly in young people. As a Research Affiliate, Dwayne will contribute to the Healthy Child program by assisting with interpretation and synthesis of data streams such as accelerometry. He aims to progress insights into the relationship between children’s interaction with digital technology and their sleep.
