Research Interests
I am currently the qualitative social scientist for a gynaecological cancer research centre. My work here focuses on sexual functioning post treatment using a holistic framework of human sexuality. I also do critical discourse analysis work on the ways in which sexuality is spoken about in the context of gynaecological cancers. In the future, I hope to pursue more sexologically oriented research about sexual identity and sexual functioning in the context of chronic illness. I am also interested in designing and evaluating support group programs for persons experiencing sexual difficulties due to chronic illness.
