Nicci facilitates cooperative relationships with research cores and stakeholders. Nicci brings nearly twenty years of experience with all aspects of the research enterprise, including extensive experience with clinical and pediatric assessment.

Nicci also manages the Wisconsin Twin Research, a set of epidemiological twin studies from birth to young adulthood, under UW–Madison faculty member Hill Goldsmith.
