The Sex, Gender, and Reproductive Psychology Research Team is an interdisciplinary group of researchers focusing on the psychological, behavioural, socio-cultural, and political dimensions of sex, gender, and reproduction. Our research projects, both basic and applied, span the broad spectrum of reproduction. However, our research interests have expanded to also include a wide array of topics related to human sexuality. Our principal goal is to promote informed reproductive decision-making and psychological health and well-being through all aspects of the reproductive process.

Overall, our main research interests include:

Reproductive Decision-Making

Fertility Control and Infertility

Pregnancy and Birth


Sexuality and Relationships

Gender-Based Violence
