Academic interests:

I’m interested in understanding the genetic and environmental influences on anxiety, depression, and educational achievement, across development. To explore this, I combine twin and family data with new genomic tools. As part of the Neighborhood Genetics research group at PROMENTA, I’m investigating how interplay between genes and social environments, from interpersonal to regional, shapes mental health and educational trajectories.

 

Teaching:
