Biography

My work addresses cognitive and non-cognitive individual differences using behavior and molecular genetic approaches.

Recent research includes

  • Positive psychology: Eudaimonic wellbeing is strongly genetic, and has 5 distinct facets;
  • Language and reasoning: The first Genome-wide Association Study for dyslexia & the phonological loop
  • Education raises scores, independent of general ability
  • Religiosity and group favoritism share genetic links
