Elliot Tucker-Drob received his Ph.D. in Psychology from the University of Virginia. He has held fellowships at Harvard Medical School and the Max Planck Institute for Human Development.
Dr. Tucker-Drob's research is guided by a lifespan approach to human development and aging. He is particularly interested in the developmental pathways by which genes and social and educational environments interact to produce changes in personality, cognitive abilities, and scholastic and professional achievement. He is also interested in the effects of aging on cognitive functioning, and in factors that can potentially exacerbate or protect against the cognitive deficits that adults typically encounter as they grow older. Finally, Dr. Tucker-Drob is interested in the construction, evaluation, and application of multivariate quantitative methods for developmental, behavioral genetic, and individual differences research.
Dr. Tucker-Drob has received awards from the International Society for Intelligence Research and the American Psychological Association's Division of Adult Development and Aging. Some of his recent publications can be found in Developmental Psychology, Psychology and Aging, Neuropsychology, Behavior Genetics, and Intelligence.
