Amelie Petitclerc, PhD

Assistant Professor of Medical Social Sciences

Focus of Work


My primary research interests are in the early development and prevention of antisocial behavior. I am developing a new line in my research to understand the mechanisms of intergenerational transmission of disruptive and antisocial behavior (i.e., aggression, disregard for rules, delinquency, crime), and to develop strategies to prevent it. I am interested in using and advancing statistical methods for estimating causal effects of services and policies in children's development.
