Professor Yulia Kovas

Summary

Yulia Kovas is Professor of Genetics and Psychology at Goldsmiths; honorary professor at Moscow State University; visiting Professor at University of Sussex, New York University in London, Tomsk State University and Higher School of Economics. She directs InLab (http://tagc.world/inlab/), co-directs the International Centre for Research in Human Development (http://en.science.tsu.ru/centers/research-in-human-development/); leads research into mathematical development in the Twins Early Development Study (TEDS; https://www.teds.ac.uk/); directs the Russian School Twin Registry (RSTR); leads projects IDEAS (Individual Differences in Education and Achievement) at Educational Centre for gifted adolescents Sirius and PLIS - Prospective Longitudinal Interdisciplinary Study of families with children conceived naturally and by IVF.

Grants and Awards

Yulia has received external grant funding from a variety of organisations to support her work including: NIH; MRC; British Academy, Royal Society, Beijing Normal University; Russian Federal Grants; Erasmus+ mobility. In 2011, Yulia was awarded the ‘Mega Grant for Leading International Scientists’ (£3,000,000) from the Government of the Russian Federation to lead a program of interdisciplinary cross-cultural research into individual differences in cognition and learning.

Yulia received many awards for her research, teaching and promotion of science, including British Psychological Society Award For Outstanding Doctoral Research Contributions to Psychology; Goldsmiths Peake Award for learning and teaching; British Academy Wiley Prize in Psychology; APS Janet Taylor Spence Award for Transformative Early Career Contributions; D.I. Mendeleev Medal from Tomsk State University for significant contribution to science and education; Russian Academy of Education Award for the significant contribution to fundamental and applied scientific research.

Public Engagement and Knowledge Exchange

Professor Kovas is involved in promotion of research ethics, ethical and legal implications of genetic research; and promotion of scientific knowledge. She is a member of the Council for Ethical, Societal and Legal Implications of Genetic Research in Child Development and Education; has chaired the Psychology Department Ethics Committee at Goldsmiths for many years; and is a founding member of TAGC – The Accessible Genetics Consortium.  Her science engagement activities include:

  • Organising public workshops designed to connect the wider public with relevant research related to applications of genetic findings, such as regular Genes&Tonic events.
  • Contributing to public discussions and panels, including ESRC Science Festival, British Science Foundation debates, cafés scientific, twin festivals.
  • Providing seminars for school teachers, administrators, and students.
  • Giving interviews to media and participation in scientific documentaries.

 

Research Interests

The goal of Yulia’s research is to provide insights into the development of individual differences in cognitive abilities, emotional and motivational processes and academic achievement - contributing to more personalised educational approaches and to better education for all learners.  

  • Individual differences
  • Cognition, emotion and personality
  • Learning disabilities
  • Giftedness
  • Mathematical, language and spatial ability
  • Creativity
  • Behavioural genetics
  • Cognitive Sciences and Neuroscience
  • Cross-cultural research (the U.K., EU, U.S., Canada, China, Japan, Russia, Kyrgyzia; Nigeria).
  • Legal and ethical implications of genetics
