Our research program examines the development of the cognitive processes related to language, reading, and mathematics from the behavioral genetic perspective. We use a wide range of studies and methods involving both twins and non twins, preschoolers through adulthood. Our work employs molecular genetics, as well as careful study of the environment. In addition to research, we support mentorship opportunities for undergraduate students, graduate students, postdoctoral students, and visiting fellows. All projects in the lab are focused on the following questions:

  1. The development of the cognitive processes associated with language, reading and mathematics skills.
  2. Understanding the etiology of these processes and skills in typical and atypical development.
  3. Understanding the etiology of the comorbidity and independence among these processes and skills.
