Why are not all humans alike? Why and how are individual differences created? In my PhD project I will investigate how genetic and environmental factors and sex differences contribute to the relationship between personality and health variables over time. My goal is to find the underlying structure of genetic and environmental factors that creates individual variation.

I am interested in the integration of traditional evolutionary psychology (human universals) and behavior genetics and personality psychology (individual differences). What genetic-evolutionary processes maintains individual differences in humans over time?
