PhD defence Alexander Neumann

General Psychopathology in Children: Epidemiological studies of Biological Mechanisms

Friday 21 June 2019 Alexander Neumann (Erasmus MC, WP3) defends his PhD dissertation.

The main question of Alexander’s dissertation was: which biological factors are associated with child psychopathology in general and which biological factors are specific to certain psychopathology domains? Alexander used a range of techniques to look into genetics, neural white matter microstructure, epigenetics and cortisol. His work is very collaborative in nature and during his PhD he participated in several international consortia.
