Max is a clinical psychology PhD student working with the Moffitt & Caspi lab after completing his BS at the University of Minnesota and spending two years as a research fellow at the National Institute of Mental Health.
Max is interested in further understanding the structure of mental illness through investigating the interacting relationships between genes, environment and the brain. He is particularly interested in finding ways to combine knowledge about genetics and lifespan development with brain imaging to better assess and understand risk factors for mental illness. Through the use of imaging endophenotypes he hopes to further map out relationships between individual differences in health and disease.
In his free time Max loves to get out on his road bike and discover new parts of Durham.
