Research Description

I am interested in how genetic and environmental influences explain individual differences in human behavior. My research focuses on (1) applying psychometric methods to refine genetic associations with broadly-defined phenotypes, (2) estimating how certain environments (such as stress) enhance or dampen genetic influences, and (3) identifying "genetic risk" scores that may predict individual outcomes.

Building Remodeling Projects

Click on the title to check out these pictures from the classroom remodeling project in the basement. A second project to replace the elevators will begin in September. Beginning with the freight elevator, each elevator will be out of service for three months. To get quickly from one floor to another, and improve your fitness, we will encourage the use of the stairs. The repainting of the northeast stairwell has been completed, and the painter is starting on the southwest stairwell.
