Asst Prof Olivia Choy
Assistant Professor, School of Social Sciences
Olivia Choy received her Ph.D. in Criminology from the University of Pennsylvania in 2017. From 2013-2014, she was also a Visiting Scholar at the Institute of Criminology at the University of Cambridge. Her research focuses on the etiology of criminal behavior in adults and antisocial behavior in children, as well as interventions for such behavior. She examines the role of biological factors, together with psychological and social environmental variables, to gain a more complete understanding of the mechanisms underlying antisocial behavior. Specifically, she studies psychophysiological factors such as heart rate, brain mechanisms using non-invasive brain stimulation and neuroimaging methods, and nutrition in relation to criminal and antisocial behavior.
