effects of changing ride height

Does changing ride height affect the Drag or just the downforce? I guess that decreasing rideheight would increase drag (as downforce is usually a function of drag), however my degree project supervisor thinks the opposite as he guesses that the vortices produced under the car increase with increased ride height lowering the downforce (in addition to the loss of ground effect) and increasing the drag
Who is correct? The Dr or the Student?
