I’m interested in how genetic variation confers risk for schizophrenia via influence on cognitive, heritable aspects of the disorder, such as memory, processing speed, and executive function. To investigate this, I employ complimentary studies with respect to methodology (e.g., structural genetics, gene expression, fMRI, neurocognitive measures) and design (e.g., psychiatric twin datasets, large samples of healthy individuals) to identify neurobiological pathways that are particularly vulnerable in high-risk individuals and may contribute to the development of psychopathology.
