In 2012, I earned a Ph.D. from the Department of Psychology at Harvard University. The papers collected in my dissertation cover causal inference, genome-wide association studies, and cognitive-experimental approaches to the study of individual differences. I was a postdoctoral researcher in the Mathematical Biology Section of NIDDK/NIH from 2011 to 2013, where I worked on problems in population and statistical genetics. I am currently an associate professor in the Department of Psychology at the University of Minnesota, affiliated with the Personality, Individual Differences, and Behavior Genetics area.
