The primary object of our research is to understand the development of aggressive antisocial behavior (AAB) over the lifespan.

Our research is conducted within the field of forensic psychiatry, drawing on theory and methods from several disciplines, including developmental psychopathology, epidemiology, cognitive neuroscience and psychophysiology.
