Hawes, Samuel Graduate Faculty



  • Dr. Hawes' research is focused on understanding the affective and neurocognitive mechanisms underlying the early-onset and developmental course of distinct facets of psychopathology (e.g., callous-unemotional features, psychopathy, negative emotionality) across childhood and adolescence. His work is particularly targeted toward identifying how these processes contribute to the onset, maintenance and desistance from high-risk behaviors (e.g., conduct problems/antisocial behaviors, impulsivity, substance use, violence) via unique etiological pathways. Dr. Hawes also has a strong methodological interest and his work uses a combination of MRI-based functional and structural imaging and advanced latent variable modeling (e.g., Bayesian SEM, growth mixture modeling) techniques.
