My current research focus is to explain chronic antisocial behaviour that occurs in childhood through psychopathic traits (e.g., low empathy, insensitivity, narcissism, irresponsibility) and their interaction with children’s social environments. The questions I ask concern the continuity of these traits in children and across generations, their clinical usefulness for professionals working with young people with behavioural difficulties, and the role of environmental factors in shaping them. This work falls within the scope of Axes 1 and 2 of GRISE.
