Genetics in social models
The objective of the FINDME project, led by Félix Tropf, Assistant Professor at the Center for Research in Economics and Statistics (CREST*), is to place social sciences in the interdisciplinary enterprise to explain variance in social outcomes – also considering determinants from other disciplines. Geneticists have developed big data techniques, which can be applied in social sciences too. With his interdisciplinary education, Dr Tropf will lead a project that applies those statistical approaches for social science prediction and also include genetic variables to explain life course outcomes.
