I am a professor in the Psychology & Neuroscience department at the University of Colorado, Boulder and the Director of the Institute for Behavioral Genetics (see my IBG page here). The research in my lab involves using measured single nucleotide polymorphism as well as sequencing data to gain insight into the genetic architecture of psychiatric disorders and other complex traits; and modeling and simulating genetically informative designs that better enable us to understand the causes of human trait variation and the resemblance between relatives. Our long-term goal is to elucidate the genetic underpinnings of psychiatric disorders and other complex traits. I am currently recruiting postdoctoral fellows interested in developing innovative methods to better understand the genetic architecture of complex traits. Please contact me if interested.

The true mystery of the world is the visible, not the invisible. --Oscar Wilde

Probably all organic beings which have ever lived on this earth have descended from some one primordial form, into which life was first breathed. There is grandeur in this view of life that, whilst this planet has gone cycling on according to the fixed law of gravity, from so simple a beginning endless forms most beautiful and most wonderful have been, and are being evolved. --Charles Darwin

This monkey mythology of Darwin is the cause of permissiveness, promiscuity, prophylactics, perversions, pregnancies, abortions, pornotherapy, pollution, poisoning, and proliferation of crimes of all types. --Judge Braswell Dean of the Georgia State Court of Appeals, 1981

I do not feel obliged to believe that the same God who has endowed us with sense, reason, and intellect has intended us to forgo their use. --Galileo Galilei
