Research

One of his areas of interest is in the interactions between genetic and environmental risk factors for severe mental disorders. His current effort is to study prevention of psychiatric disorders before their onset, particularly in blood relatives of people suffering from schizophrenia, to identify traits that predispose a person to developing schizophrenia from both genetic and environmental perspectives.
