    I'm a psychologist and cognitive neuroscientist with some training in genetics and epidemiology. I?m interested in how genetic and environmental factors affect cognitive functions and mental health throughout life. This includes the development of relatively rare disorders such as schizophrenia as well as common ones such as anxiety, depression, and dementia. I?m involved in ongoing longitudinal studies including the Northern Finland Birth Cohorts and the UK National Survey of Health and Development where we are investigating how genetic and environmental influences develop and change across the lifecourse.
