Elliot Tucker-Drob - Named a Recipient of the Max Planck-Humboldt Medal

Elliot Tucker-Drob will be honored for his contributions to the fields of developmental psychology, aging, and behavioral genetics. Professor Tucker-Drob studies how social and biological processes combine to shape human psychological development across the entirety of the lifespan. His research on the complex interactions between genome and environmental context helps to refine targets for social policies and educational interventions to improve learning, and provides an important knowledge-base for public discourse surrounding social justice and equality of opportunity. Tucker-Drob was nominated by Professor Ulman Lindenberger, Director of the Max Planck Institute for Human Development.
