A. Brooke Sasia
I am a fourth year PhD student in clinical psychology studying under the mentorship of Dr. James Li. My research focuses on several areas:
- The structure of psychopathology, with a focus on externalizing behaviors (e.g., antisocial behaviors, substance use) as defined in the Hierarchical Taxonomy of Psychopathology (HiTOP)
- How externalizing behaviors develop across the lifespan, with an emphasis on childhood and adolescence
- Interplay between genes and environment on developmental trajectories of externalizing
- Implications of incorporating genetic information, specifically polygenic scores, within clinical settings and the legal system
In addition to my research, I am also interested in psychological and forensic assessments.
