Social rhythms in the age of COVID-19

AIAS Fellow Lisa M. Wu is a research expert in daily life rhythms, such as circadian rhythms, and is studying how these are affected by illnesses, such as cancer. Now she and her colleagues have launched a survey to study how people’s social rhythms and emotional well-being may be affected during the corona virus.

Together with research colleague Assistant Professor Ali Amidi in the Department of Psychology and Behavioural Sciences at Aarhus University in Denmark, AIAS Fellow Lisa M. Wu is interested in learning more about our social rhythms and emotional well-being during periods of self-isolation during the corona pandemic.

The team have launched a survey that asks questions about the participant’s background and living situation, COVID-19 and any regional shutdown the participant is experiencing, the participant’s thoughts and feelings, and daily routines of sleep and activities.

 “With this knowledge we are hoping to learn more about how these routines and people’s experiences are affected by this highly irregular and unusual time in history,” explains Lisa M. Wu.

Who can participate in the study?

Anyone in the world at the age of 18 or over and who reads English can participate. The study will continue until self-isolation policies are reduced or ended.
