Andrea Headshot 1


Andrea Gonzalez is an Assistant Professor of Psychiatry and Behavioural Neurosciences. Her research aims to understand the mechanisms by which early human experiences are transmitted across generations and how preventive interventions may affect this transmission. Andrea looks to identify biological, neuropsychological and psychosocial risk and resilience factors contributing to parenting and subsequent child developmental outcomes. Andrea’s research is an important key for understanding links between intergenerational trauma and how some people live longer, healthier lives based on their biological makeup.
