Daniel Gartenberg, PhD
CEO at Sonic Sleep Coach; Adjunct Assistant Professor at Penn State University
Dan has dedicated his life to helping people sleep better. Daniel has a Ph.D. in Human Factors and Applied Cognition from George Mason University and is an adjunct assistant professor at Penn State University.
He has conducted grant-funded research from the National Science Foundation and the National Institute of Aging to develop sound environments that can diagnose and treat sleep disorders, improve sleep quality, and optimize daytime alertness. He has also developed several mobile sleep apps, such as the Sonic Sleep Coach, which provides personalized sleep feedback and sounds that are designed to modulate sleep quality.
His current research is focused upon accurately tracking sleep quality through wearable technology. But he doesn’t just want to measure it, he wants to make it better. Dan is particularly interested in using technology to enhance slow-wave sleep (also known as deep sleep) by manipulating temperature, light, and sound.
