Dr. Neumann currently studies the genetics of Alzheimer’s disease biomarkers, by examining rare genetic variants obtained from whole exome sequencing (WES). The work focuses on pleiotropic effects on multiple biomarkers, as well as mediation analyses to test whether genes influencing Alzheimer's risk do so by affecting biomarker levels. Dr. Neumann obtained a PhD in psychiatric epidemiology from Erasmus University Rotterdam. The PhD thesis focuses on the genetics and epigenetics of child psychopathology, as well as the co-occurrence of child psychiatric problems. Dr. Neumann has experience leading genome-wide (GWAS) and epigenome-wide association studies (EWAS) in international consortia, such as the The EArly Genetics and Lifecourse Epidemiology (EAGLE) and Pregnancy And Childhood Epigenetics (PACE) consortia. He also worked on white matter integrity in relation to general psychopathology in childhood, as well as on the genetics of cortisol.
