Elliot M. Tucker-Drob

Associate Professor of Psychology, University of Texas, Austin

Tucker-Drob and Kathryn Paige Harden will analyze data from the Texas Twin Project, a study of over 1,000 twins, to examine how genetic and social factors interact to shape child and adolescent development. Tucker-Drob will study how socioeconomic disadvantage suppresses genetic influences on academic achievement. He will first test how chronic biological stress is related to socioeconomic disadvantage, and then examine how the physiological and psychological consequences of both in turn affect academic achievement.
