Project: 

Leveraging family data to advance genomic research on psychological traits.

Research Overview:

I am interested in understanding the genetic and environmental influences on anxiety and depression, and other complex psychological traits, across development. To explore this, I am combining twin and family data with new genomic tools. I am keen to use polygenic scores as well as the Children of Twins design to study the role of genotype-environment correlation in the transmission of traits within families.
