Sofia Axelrod, PhD, is a sleep researcher in the laboratory of Michael W. Young, the winner of the 2017 Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine, at the Rockefeller University in New York. She studied in Germany at Eberhard-Karls-University in Tübingen and at Humboldt University in Berlin, where she earned her PhD in biology in 2012. When she is not investigating the molecular basis of sleep, or spending time with her family, she performs classical vocal music on stages across the United States and Europe. Her passion for the science of sleep and her personal experience using this method with her children and friends has inspired her to share the How Babies Sleep method with a wider audience through sleep coaching and writing this book.

From Dr Axelrod
When my first baby was born, I started applying my work in a sleep science lab to my baby’s sleep. Normal light suppresses the sleep hormone melatonin, so I only exposed my baby to red light at night. It worked not just for us, but for countless parents who I help through my coaching and soon-to-be-published book. Using cutting-edge science I am able to solve most sleep problems in an innovative and gentle way. My book describing my method will be published with Simon & Schuster is available for preorder here.
