She reports directly to Dr Alexandra Holmes, Research Director at Clockwork Research and is based at the company’s office in London.

Cristina specialises in the psycho-behavioural predictors of jet lag and fatigue in the aviation sector. Her role at Clockwork Research is varied, including the development of fatigue surveys and survey analysis, the development of fatigue investigation process, the review and recommendation of procedures, the scientific study of roster patterns, and the use of bio-mathematical models to conduct roster analysis.

Cristina has recently completed a PhD in Health Psychology at the University of Surrey, exploring the psycho-behavioural predictors of jet lag amongst long-haul cabin crew. Her research examined the relationship between subjective (symptom perception) and objective (shift in the timing of melatonin) jet lag in order to provide a comprehensive account of jet lag in long-haul cabin crew.

Prior to carrying out her PhD, Cristina worked as long-haul cabin crew for 24 years. She is also a Visiting Researcher and Academic Tutor in Psychology for the University of Surrey, as well as a Chartered Member of the British Psychological Society and an Associate Fellow of the Higher Education Academy.

Commenting on Christina’s appointment, Alexandra Holmes, Research Director at Clockwork Research, said: "I am delighted to welcome someone of Cristina’s knowledge base to the Clockwork team. Her first-hand experience as a long-haul crew cabin crew member gives her unique insight into the effects that jet lag and fatigue can have - from both a biological and psychosocial perspective - and I have no doubt that she will deliver significant value to our clients.”
