Dr. Kathryn Asbury

Senior Lecturer

Research interests

I am Director of the GOALS (GenOmics And Life Stories) group and our research explores two main areas: the development (and correlates) of life stories and personal identity, and genetics in education.  Our interest in life story research is primarily focused on associations between aspects of narrative identity and successful adult living (e.g. employment, social support and life satisfaction).  This is an emerging area of research for me and will be a major focus for the GOALS group over the coming years.  My background is in twin research and in applying behavioural genetic research to education.  I am particularly interested in exploring the risks and benefits associated with using findings from genetic research (e.g. polygenic scores) to inform educational policy and practice. Potential PhD students, post-docs or visiting scholars in either of these areas, from a range of disciplinary backgrounds, are welcome to contact me directly to discuss project ideas or collaborations with GOALS.
