About Dr. Koellinger:
Philipp Koellinger is full professor at the La Follette School of Public Affairs at UW-Madison (http://philipp-koellinger.com). Originally trained as an economist, his research investigates how genes influence human behavior, and how insights into the genetic architecture of behavioral outcomes can inform social and medical research. He is one of the principal investigators and co-founders of the Social Science Genetic Association Consortium (SSGAC), the Externalizing Consortium, and the Brain Imaging and Genetics in Behavioral Research (BIG BEAR) Consortium. In addition to various large-scale genome-wide association studies on social-scientific outcomes (e.g. educational attainment, subjective well-being, risk tolerance), he is also involved in the development and application of new statistical methods that use genetic data (e.g. the MetaGap calculator, GIV regression, tests for genetic heterogeneity in traits such as schizophrenia).
