Dr. Carey's major research interest is in the development and testing of mathematical models that relate genes to behavior and that go beyond simple estimates of heritability and genetic correlations. To this end, he is developing models that attempt to quantify, for example, the extent to which genetic transmission of personality traits can explain some part of the genetic transmission of certain forms of psychopathology.
