Research topic: Genetic and environmental contributions to psychiatric disorders

Both genes and the environment contribute to psychiatric disorders, however the extent to which they both contribute and interact to cause illness is still poorly understood. Modelling longitudinal data is one way to explore this relationship. My research uses data from the Avon Longitudinal Study of Parents and Children (ALSPAC) and statistical techniques such as multilevel modelling (MLM) to address this topic.
