Research Focus/Background: Our translational neuroscience uses novel bioinformatic approaches with large data sets and animal models to examine the genetic and environmental influences that shape individual differences in brain development. By defining the conditions that lead to poor academic achievement and mental health, as well as those that enhance resilience, we aim to identify modifiable targets for intervention in early life to improve brain health.
Problem/goals to address as part of CERES: Use of digital technologies to develop validated screening tools for adolescent mental health and map variations as the basis for personalized digital interventions.
Location of Research Projects: Singapore and Montreal
